If you've played the game or seen the trailer you know Ori is visually stunning. James Benson explains how Moon Studios was able to create thousands of Ghibli-style frames of animation with limited time, people, and skills.

Five Stages Of Watching A Pixar Movie

Last week Pixar's Inside Out had record breaking opening weekend at the Box Office. It set an all-time record for both an original animated and live-action movie with $91.1 million(estimated) box office collection.
Here's fun little animated video created by guys at How It Should Have Ended called 'Five Stages of Watching A Pixar Movie.'
A year or two ago a team known as StudioMDHR appeared in the video game scene with something no one knew they wanted until they saw it - a game animated in the style of a 1930s cartoon. While it's (probably) been featured on this site before, the newest trailer from E3 shows several bosses that are just too good to pass up. Whether you are a fan of games or not, it's hard not to appreciate the pain staking effort going into this game for the aesthetic alone. If you're wondering what their process is, you only need look back at the '30s: hand drawn and inked cels, water color backgrounds, and original jazz recordings for the OST. Cuphead shows that animation techniques from the past still hold up in the present world, with many clamoring to play it for its originality.
