Elk Hair Caddis - fun short film

Lotso, lotso fun stuff. I really like the feel of the real life miniature sets. Animation is a fun ride, too. Love the deforms and the shapes in transition. Definitely see the Meindbender influences (which is a good thing). Enjoy!

And here's a really neat "making of" video that shows some stuff. Fun rigging, too.

Congrats to Peter Smith, Magnus Moller and the whole crew.

Logorama? Seriously?

I won't even bother linking to it. I found it too banal to even comprehend. It didn't even do a good job of parlaying any indepth social commentary. "Let's make a bunch of cartoon logos play out a hundred bad cop film cliche's. And add an earthquake! Yeah! Awesome!" That's about as deep as it went. Maybe I'm just a grumpy old man...
