THINGS I LIKE #3

H. P. Lovecraft has perhaps the widest and most loving following of any historical racist horror writer. Some of the things that get made about his work are among the most interesting and diverse of their kind. First of all, there’s the stuff I’ve done (see previous posts), but then there’s also things that other people have made, too. Let’s have a look at some of those.

This is a trailer for the 2005 black and white silent movie “The Call of Cthulhu”. It’s pretty fantastic in terms of look, atmosphere, and especially the Cthulhu model at the end. I really want to watch this.

For this one, the animation might not be the best in the world, the storytelling may be more than a little hard to follow unless you already know the original story, and the spiral transitions are appalling, but the illustration and the colours more than make up for it. I think I’ll have to try something similar…

And finally, there is this. There’s such a great blend of different animation styles and video… The fact that it has less than 500 views (at the time of writing) just seems wrong to me. It’s probably the best example I’ve found recently of what I would like to try doing visually, I think?

That’s all for now, anyway! Just a little update to keep a record of the kind of stuff I’ve been looking at. And, listening to: Check out the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast, it’s really funny and also very informative. Two times the goodness.
