Professional Animators Create Bizarre Trippy Visual Weirdness

By Bryan Lufkin on at

Ever wonder what the dreams of a professional animator must look like? Adult Swim’s Off the Air videos continue to be some close approximate of that breed of visual weirdness, and Shapes is the latest instalment.

Strap in for kaleidoscopic cats figures, trippy rotoscoping, claymation, glitch art, and intentionally terrible CGI. The video took the work of many animators and musicians, including Cool 3D World and Battles. There’s a long weekend coming up, which means you have time to watch this video almost 393 times, if the whole concept of sleep is somehow disgusting to you.

Anyway, stay in school, don’t do drugs. Or do—I’m not your dad.
