Sins by Ariel Costa

It's difficult to know where to begin in describing Sins by Ariel Costa, aka BlinkMyBrain...

Sins is, hands down, one of the best pieces of animation made within the motion design community in recent years, if not ever. Novices and professionals alike had their minds collectively blown the day this film came out.

Ariel's style of animation is truly one of a kind. By combining a multitude of digital-meets-faux-analog techniques, it can be hard to identify how he did just about anything in this film, until now!

This is a rare opportunity to dive deep into the mind of a true master of our craft.
