I just saw this oscar-nominated short. It’s not everyday we get to see fun, cartoony exaggeration done right in CG. This one’s well done, and nicely storyboarded too.
When Pixar’s Presto came out, I was pretty excited to see cartoon animation in CG. Over time I’ve realized that while Presto had some great movement, the overall pacing, rhythm and flow was pretty weak. The Lady And The Reaper, while not flawless, flows more smoothly and feels warmer. I might write more about it in the coming days; for now, enjoy the film!
Here’s the official site.
