A triple hit of Marc Craste.
Tried to post this yesterday on the mirror blog at tais.animationblogspot.com, but still havin' a few technical glitches. Taday, a creepy trio from Marc Craste, the master of skungy sepia and blasted black n' white. Pay particular close attention to the second film, a music video for the swedish band Mum that manages to be creepy, sorrowful, wistful and longing all at the same damn time. The first film, commissioned for a UK lottery, manages to be funny and cute while never losing that disturbing edge that is Craste's stock and trade. Finally, we have 'Hounds of Flesh', an excerpt from his 'Pica Towers' trilogy. Perfect viewing for the eve of Friday the 13th, if you ask me. Enjoy!
