Yo. I've not submitted anything for a while, so here you go something from uni. I made this for fun after getting the idea the other morning while in the shower. That day I printed n cut out my stencil, the next day I painted & animated it - on my shower wall.

The idea is basically how the image of Che Guevara is eradicating, its just an image nowadays - iconic nonetheless - but iconic of what? Ignorant rebellion? Most people (like myself) need to scratch beneath the surface to see what's there.

I guess you'd class this as stop motion animation?

Music recorded by me and my friend this morning, a few sounds used from the free sound project (thanks to Sikoses & Corsica_S)

It's a shame to say it - because youtube is slowly devolving, being taken over by adverts and such, but you can see a higher quality version on Youtube- http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=IqJU2zQPX1Y



You're right ché guevara was nothing else than a murderer.
Thanks to the help of the US he was finally executed.

But I don't see what McDonalds has to do with ché guevara.
Except that ché was a commie and McDonalds is often used as a symbol of capitalism.

Viva La Revolución

For some reason I think this could easily be a commercial for some organisation that fights against the commercialisation the world is facing. Except they wouldn't make commercials. The message is clear.

I've worn a shirt with the famous icon, with a red background. I was a bit of a commie back then (have long moved on), but at least knew who the guy was. It was then that I started noticing CCCP/Che and other such things on clothing a lot, and shook my head that people didn't have a clue on what it was ("But it's pwetty").

Also a nice incorporation of the shower curtain.

You're right

Mac donalds conquers the world

I thought you did well.

The effect you produced was nice, and the subtext of the potrait melting into a McDonald's logo was a good, if not a bit bland, message. This isn't a world shattering submission, but it is a good one and deserves frontpage. It also belongs on NG, despite what some narrow minded children might think. NG is about expression of the art, not just creating cartoons with guns and dick jokes.
"EVERYTHING by Everyone", not "Everthing funny by Everyone", folks.

I also don't like Che or his ideals (but I can respect them), and this clearly isn't an homage to the man, so I don't knock you on that. I get what you're doing. It's about the watering down of ideals in general, or things that once held importance, but now hold little more than an ironic meaning, like a joke whose punchline was forgotten.

Good job!

Yee spot on. Thanks.


i liked the style of your animation and couldn't agree more, nearly 3/4 of every person i see with a shirt with his face on it either: 1. have barley any clue why he's on all of those shirts, and 2. ironically bought it from some clothing company which exploits the workers who make their shirt in whatever country they're made. i find these things appalling and make a mockery of Ernesto Guevara and his commitment to the revolution. perhaps one day things will change. all in all good movie, good concept, keep it up
