A few years back, a short called Pixels created by Patrick Jean took the video game world by storm. Some time later, Adam Sandler picked up the rights to make a full length feature film with the idea of the real world being attacked by video game characters and turned into voxels. The first real trailer made it's debut (which Jean is helping write and produce) yesterday, which you can see above. Below is the original short. Which do you prefer? The animation of the Sandler version sure looks wonderful, but I'm partial to the original.
Here is an inspiring short animation by Vancouver film student Juba Polati. Animations like this one have been done before where the animator is fighting or interacting with characters in computer space.
Its a very nice idea but what I like most about this particular animation is how the cursor leads some of the actions by pulling and pushing the character around the screen. It has been animated really well with very convincing weight, force and body mechanics.
