If you haven't seen the work of Han Hoogerbrugge, he has created some of the coolest, most imaginative sites on the web. Hoogerbrugge creates short interactive animations that are both twisted and beautiful. You could play around for hours with a couple hundred of his animations in a new online installment called Modern Living/Neurotica Series
Hoogerbrugge uses rotoscoping to create his characters, which means he films them and then retraces the video stills by hand and then scans them into flash. He also creates all the music. You should also check out some of his older work Spin, and Hotel - very cool stuff.
