Tales of Mere Existence

Lev Yilmaz is a genius. Not only has he cottoned onto the cheapest form of “animation” possible (filming himself drawing on the opposite side of a back-lit sheaf of paper that “hides” his drawing hand sufficiently for it to appear that his simple line drawings are animating into being – just watch the youtube clip to understand) he also is a genius in his droll monotone delivery of a human insight. Be it about procrastination or getting a girlfriend; there’s truth (and sadness) and humour in what he has to say. Its only a matter of time until he’s either ripped off or gets paid some serious dosh for a very cool technique to deliver dry commentary on the human condition.

About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.
