   Rotary Park Special, The Bass guitar solo by Drunken Bear (A.K.A. Soul)

Rotary Park Special, The Bass guitar solo by Drunken Bear (A.K.A. Soul) from Rotarypark on Vimeo.

I recently discovered this very cool and fun short animation video of a Korean web series called, Rotary Park. The video above shows a very fun, flawless and rich of details animation of a Drunken Bear in the show, who seems to be called Soul. The performance here is fantastic as it strongly displays the bear's personality and attitude right when we see him. I especially enjoy the amount of the polish and details in the animation.

I also think that the character design is very good and thoughtful as each of them has their own signature look (eg: the pink blush on the bear's cheek and X mark on the bear's belly, the hair of the male mermaid), which also make them very memorable. The web series itself is very funny and might feel a little bit bizarre, but I really admire their braveness in showing the unique idea to the world. A lesson that I learn from this series is; dare to be different and go crazy with your ideas! You can check out Rotary Park YouTube Channel for more episodes and great animation. Below is the first episode of the series, hope you enjoy it!

   Brad Bird's 1980's Pencil Test of The Spirit

Here's a great chance of watching real animation gem. You can Thank me later for it. Actually we should all thank producer Steven Paul Leiva for sharing this rare Pencil Test.

As for history goes, long before Frank Miller's adaption of The Spirit, group of young filmmakers wanted to make an animated film with Will Eisner's crime fighter character, Denny Colt.

That group of filmmakers had Brad Bird, Gary Kurtz and John Lasseter in it.

It's an inspiring pencil test. And you still can see the strong storytelling in it, establishing the Hook right away. Where he says "…I wana remain dead.."

It definitely could have been unique and fun animated film.

What do you think?

   Le Petit Prince

You may or may not know the story of The Little Prince, originally published in 1943. It's a French story from the famous Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and it's one of the best selling published books of all time. It's funny to me that I had no experience with it until my fourth year of French studies. In any case, there have been many adaptations of it, but the newest one looks absolutely wonderful (no offense to Gene Wilder and Bob Fosse). I don't recall there being the more typical 3D animation in the first trailer I saw, so it was interesting to see that for the majority of this one. It's intriguing to see two distinct styles being used based on reality versus the story. Though to be honest, I prefer the style used when talking about the Prince.
