Let's try something different this weekend for animation inspiration. This video contains most of the backgrounds done by the famous art director & background artist Kazuo Oga on Ghibli Animated Films.
This beautiful work is really inspiring, I hope it fires up your creative juices. Take it all in.. :)
I believe it's safe to say that everyone has a few animation studios that they just love. For me, Studio 4°C is in my top five. My first viewing of their work was in Memories, which I watched because of Satoshi Kon's involvement. From then on I was hooked, and have yet to be let down. The newly announced Mutafukaz is a collaboration between Studio 4°C and Ankama, a multimedia company who has published the comics of the same name. It won't be done until 2017, and who knows if/when it'll get a US release, but in the meantime, Titan Comics will be distributing the series in America, Canada, and the UK later this year. If you'd like to see more of the world now, check out the official site.
This video came up on my news feed a few weeks back and although I am not a fan of these mash up compilations that are edited together with some cheesy music. The main reason I thought it was well worth sharing is because it is nice to take a moment and appreciate the subtitles in performance that we go to in animation..
An eye dart, a brow move, a lip quiver, a hand clasp.. all these choices are all thought out by the animation team to create believable life.. to captivate and inspire the audience. To make us care.
