  • J aj aj aj ja, wow, fiuzzzhh, ahhhh, oooohh yeahhh that's what I'm talking about, what? yo, hey!, ziuiisshh, tiki chun!, woaahh!!! @BurnetRhoades thanks buddy, from the heart =)

  • Hah hah, yeah, you like that one, eh? I love how weird and a little creepy it is. I don't even mind the hipster angel. It's beautifully done as well.

    The only thing I'd have done differently was maybe try and work out a method so that the colored smoke didn't come on "poppy", so that it looked more like it was forming like some of the cloud tank effects that Trumbull and Co. did for Close Encounters, the way the ships kind of generated clouds to conceal themselves when up high. But otherwise very, very well done. The hair especially.

    They did such a great job on the facial rig for the sheep when he wakes up as a caterpillar that I wish there was more than that one quick scene.

  • I didn't like it, it ran through my veins... Despite normally I'm more into greyish old fashioned zones or obnoxious ruptures, I totally agree about your points Sean, even the smoke :P The feel to the scene, the light, the framing (hiding at first), the palette and the motion hand in hand with character's "own nature" and gestures are top notch... I swear I forgot I was looking at computer stuff, the hairs, the textures, the eyes... it's not done for perfection sake, it complements, it brings a depth, a marvel live seed for making credible/enjoyable a story... and also makes it much funnier, the wonderfully hipster walkman, the suicidal sheep throttle, the squishy hands of the caterpillar, LOL... if you ask me, when I think/search for animation, this is the kind of passion and care (craft) I Iong for and deeply appreciate, who else in the world would give a sad sheep such a treatment?!!!... That said, not long ago a scene couldn't be re-rendered... lets just never forget that and enjoy life and errors, cheerees mucho-master BurnetRhoades!!!

  • The Thief and the Cobbler

    The Greatest Cartoon Almost Made

    At the height of his career, Richard Williams was hailed as the next Walt Disney. He wanted to prove that animation was high art, not just something to sell toys and cereal. So he spent three decades working on a single film called The Thief and The Cobbler, which was going to be extraordinary. But he made a deal with a movie studio that he couldn't keep. Garrett Gilchrist, Kevin Schreck, Neil Boyle and Greg Duffell discuss whether Hollywood or Williams's perfectionism did him in.

    FULL FILM reconstruction:

    Garrett Gilchrist's restoration of the unfinished animated masterpiece from 3-time Oscar-winning animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, A Christmas Carol). Still a work in progress, this has been "cobbled" together from the many existing cuts to bring the film closer to its original form.

    Persistence of Vision

    Full film, cropped to 4:3

  • Of course the real cutting edge of animation is actually the CGI we have become to take for granted in Hollywood blockbusters. Also the incredible rendering in many games today.

    This is 6 years old but still amazes me. We simply can't trust what is real anymore in media I think.

  • @suresure123 About CGI...ummmm... still today while watching good anime (for example), I'm blast away not so much by the fusion of tecniques or else tecno-potatos but by how much love the people actually drawing put into the characters, into developing nuances, a sense of pace, humour, how much care and attention to details, to eye catchin' and eye pleasin' perspectives and new ways of rendering a scene. Meanwhile a story is developed, sometimes more surreal (Paprika) sometimes and despite surreal more grounded (Summer Wars)... but in the end they talk about and around what is to be human, to core values that define/shape/change us.

    All that can be achieved by CGI, but doesn't happen so often as mostly (even in feat films) it's a cheper (easy) way of achieving and conveying a view and/or its effect. There are amazing CGI artists but often enough they true potential is lost in a superfitial and utilitariabn retinal firework.

    Thanks @Jleo for the hook up
