So using blender was a lot easier and less painless then I thought. I used a technique I learned when I used to play a lot of games on Gamespy hosting service. (I think I was 10 or 12 yrs old). I just opened up the texture maps of the model and edited on my face, changed the colors around to something I like and viola! Avatar.
Man and a cat at the end of the world, this was the first short I saw that convinced me I could do an entire piece in just after effects, on my own.
Alma is an almost too creepy piece done by a ex-Pixar animator. It shows that the digital medium does not need to just be kids movies.
Frank Chimero's short about our prison systems uses the animation style I am looking for.
Bits & Pieces is just a cool, well done animation that creates a film-noir feel.
Bill Melendez is a pioneer for rich story telling in a cartoon format.
Moonboy just blew me away, totally not what I was expecting when I first stumbled upon it.
Today is the first day of production for an animated short, "eaten up".
It explores the topics of greed, delinquency, and moral ambiguity in a different format: a childish cartoon.
