Future Comics: De Vriend book trailer

It’s been a while since we looked at one of those motiony-comicky-giffy-dealies that take comics and extend them in a browsable movable way. Here’s one from the Netherlands. It’s actually an animated book trailer for De Vriend (Friend) by Dutch thriller author Charles den Tex. It was animated and illustrated by Aimee de Jongh and it was coded by Submarine, using a technique called “Skrollr” which unfolds as you scroll through it. (Pro tip: you can also use the down button.)

As a trailer, this mostly sets up a mood of anxiety and paranoia, but it’s still striking looking and makes good use of sound loops as well.

If you poke around on the Submarine website you’ll find some other animated trailer by young Dutch artists.
