The folks over at Skullmapping created this fun series of animation projections that portray a miniature chef (Le Petit Chef) laboring to cook a meal atop a real dining table. Each clip is mapped perfectly to the table setting to create the convincing illusion the tiny chef is interacting with everything on it, and some objects, like a fork, are incorporated directly into the animation itself. So far they’ve made two: Bouillabaisse and another where he whips together a grilled steak.

Perfect idea no only to share the table with friend but even to keep the kids entertained for a while 🙂

Ira Elshansky grew up in Moscow, Russia. After two years at Moscow State Textile University, in 2010 Ira moved to Israel and studied animation at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.

I love the short film “Connection” as I see myself every morning like this lady.

It is a real pleasure to find such a beutiful things in life.

Thanks Ira!

Animation is the process of creating motion and shape change illusion by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.

Animations can be recorded on either analogue media, such as a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, or on digital media, including formats such as animated GIF, Flash animation or digital video. To display it, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used.

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, such as paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second.

La Linea (“The Line”) is an Italian animated series created by the Italian cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli.

The series consists of 90 episodes, each about 2–3 minutes long, which were originally broadcast on the Italian channel RAI between 1971 and 1986. Over the years the series aired in more than 40 countries around the world.

This serie is pretty nice as you can see an constant interaction in the animation and probably the most inocent factor which is missing in many cartoons on TV.

The cartoon features a man (known as “Mr. Linea”) drawn as a single outline around his silhouette, walking on an infinite line of which he is a part.

The character encounters obstacles and often turns to the cartoonist, represented as a live-action hand holding a white grease pencil, to draw him a solution, with various degrees of success. One recurring obstacle was an abrupt end of the line.

The character would often almost fall off the edge into oblivion and get angry with the cartoonist and complain about it. He was voiced by Carlo Bonomi in a mock version of Milanese that resembled gibberish as much as possible, giving the cartoon the possibility to be easily exported without dubbing.

The voice resembles Pingu’s, the Swiss animated penguin, which was also voiced by Bonomi.

The first 8 episodes of the series were, in fact, created to publicize Lagostina kitchenware products, and the accompanying narration identified Mr. Linea as “Agostino Lagostina, a sharp little man with a truly expressive nose.” After the 8th episode, however, the series broke its association with Lagostina
