I've featured the brilliant work of Steve Cutts previously, with the piece "The Turning Point." A brilliant illustrator and animator, he utilizes After Effects, Toon Boom, and Photoshop. Hoping to feature an interview with him very soon....

This last piece is one I had bookmarked a long while ago. It's a beautiful musical animation inspired by the first woman to build and design an airplane - E. Lilian Todd. Painstakingly crafted in stop motion using cut outs, it also features an amazing cast of voices behind it. Be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes piece, here.
It's 1909, and the whole world is waking to the possibilities of flight. Miss Todd dreams of flying, but she's got more than gravity holding her down. This is the story of her determination, her perseverance, and her passion - inspired by E. Lilian Todd - the first woman in the world to build and design an airplane.
Made at the National Film and Television School, UK.
