The Kid Should See This

Silly Robots by YLLW

Silly Robots is a fast-paced, delightful animation exercise that’s composed of 50 looping gifs. It was created by London-based studio YLLW as a fun daily project:

We wanted each ‘Silly Robot’ to be different from one another, either in movement or conceptually so we created a set or rules; a strict colour palette, one texture and no more than 4 hours to create each one from start to finish (which we broke only a few times).

Each robot started as a sketch, we then worked directly wthin After Effects where we used shape layers and a few plugins to help speed up the design and animation process. We didn’t want to be too precious over every little movement and whatever we had at the end of a few hours usually went up to social media and we moved onto the next robot.

Next, watch Andy Martin’s Illustrated Aliens, the Sketchbook Machines by Maarten Koopman, Robotic Loop: Train vs. Robot, and more robot videos.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
