Remember when South Park took the world by storm using paper cutouts for animation? Dastoli Digital does that with this piece, though opposed to social commentary being the selling factor, we see beautiful, fluid animation that reminds me of Hanna-Barbera at times. The process involves LOTS of cutouts and a ton of time in After Effects, but it's worth it.
Blur Studio knocks another cinematic game trailer out of the park with style, this time for upcoming Fincon title, Angel Stone. I'm getting a distinct Devil May Cry vibe, but curious what gameplay will actually look like in this hack-n-slasher intended for the mobile and Facebook platforms.
If you have time to spare… there is a really great selection of videos via the link above (sorry I was unable to embed the video) that explore the making of How to Train Your Dragon 2. The film has been nominated for a whole host of academy awards and there is a good chance that the website might be taken down after the award ceremony has passed. So, watch the videos while you can!!
The videos take you on a journey from the very early concepts of How To Train Your Dragon 2, through the story and animation, to the sound choices and finalising the film.
It's really interesting to hear the thoughts, insights and challenges of the DreamWorks artists and the Director, Dean DeBlos along with a beautiful sections of animated clips, concept art and behind the scenes footage.
