Keep in mind the is made by some STUDENTS in France!! It is un-be-liev-able! The rigging and animation are exquisite, magnificent–astounding!! I love the acting, vivid envornment, and the smart combination of 2D and 3D animation elements. The design is all very well done. I honestly haven’t been excited for an animation like this in years.
Check out the artist’s websites, especially E Sousa Vincent’s rigging reel.
This is truly inspirational stuff. I need to go where they went for school. I am working on a similar reel myself and I need to research how to make some of the faces as deformable as the ones for their animations.
I can’t wait to see what’s next! Looks like another short called Meet Buck.
