Kevin B. Parry is a young animator fresh out of Sheridan College (class of 2010), now working as junior animator at San Francisco’s CinderBiter, whose fantastic animations are making quite a splash. His video for Kalle Mattson’s “Thick As Thieves” depicts a whimsical arts-and-crafts history of the world (complete with aliens!) using fabric of varying textures for the surface of the slowly spinning earth–narrow- and wide-wale corduroy, burlap, cotton, felt, knits, twill, even paper–and simply rendered creatures and sets, from the tiny fish that morphs into the four-legged beast who finds land, fast forward to jousting knights–and their dragon overhead!–to the spacemen of the future yet to come. Parry’s IMDB credits are sparse but growing, including stints as director on another Mattson video that has over 150,000 YouTube views. A visit to his 100 Films Tumblr demonstrates that this is an up-and-comer devoted to understanding all aspects of film and implementing what he learns into his own work.
