Almost exactly a year ago today, we featured a cool video called ABCinema that paired each letter of the alphabet with a visual and sound clips from a movie, all artistically based around a circle in the middle. And after delivering a few other film based videos in the same fashion, including 123 Film, animator Evan Seitz is back with ABCinema: Take 2, and 26 more films with some fantastic animation and many films which ended up nominated for Oscars. Most of the films are pretty popular and easy to figure out, but he includes a few obscure choices. Anyway, it's the little touches for each film that make this a cool video. Watch below!
Here is Evan Seitz's ABCinema: Take 2, which the animator sent to us personally (on Vimeo):
It's a shame that most Blu-Ray and DVD menus are simple and boring now, because Seitz could probably make some pretty intricately animated menus. My favorite thing about these videos is how short and sweet each film representation turned out, and yet it includes the perfect musical cues, audio clips and artwork to get the point across. Check out a couple more cool film based animation pieces from Seitz including similar alphabet videos with films based around countries and also colors. Can you name all the films above?
