Kind of a shame...
Some of my favorite 3d animation has come from Marc Craste of Studio Aka in London... If you have never seen Jojo in the Stars its a must see! I really love his style!
So I pop on over to his studios site to see what they are working on... and its kinda sad because I WANT TO SEE FILMS like Jojo in the Stars from them yet they are using all that WIN to make.... shampoo commercials <_>
I mean yeah everyone has to pay they bills BUT not everyone has that kind of originality and style so for me its kind of a shame to see it used on selling... like hair products... ya know what I mean?
There's a few other animators who have made short films I thought were amazing YET they went on to get absorbed by a big company or they just made random commercial things... Like "Canhead" by Timothy Hittle... I know he's at Pixar now... thats nice to make like family films BUT I think his short films were WAY more interesting than anything Pixar has made... and there's also "The Wolfman" by Tim Hope... I know he went on to make some music vids and a few other things but no feature films...
As you can see I have been influenced by all three to some extent... so yeh it seems they will never make features... So I hope you will make yours ^ ^ Because I want to watch some craZY new and different animated features NOT aimed at children or RUINED with "celebrity" voice actors... You'll probably mention Shane Acker's 9 which comes out this year which my last comment was aimed at... The short 9 was pretty suite BUT then producer Tim Burton got the woman who "wrote" corpse bride to write the script for 9...I mean what was the script like for Corpse Bride? Ok.... ummm... singing and dancing for no reason... two people meet and play piano together and apparently that makes them like in love forever or something then singing and dancing the end... I actually forgot what happened it was so BLAH?!!?!... so yeh and add all those voice actors and its the same as a shampoo commercial to me ^ ^
Hmmmm where will the next wacko animator or animatorS making crazy feature films come from? Hmmm I wonder if this d00d will try a feature next? He's in San Francisco I should go whisper in his ear ^ ^Brought to you by professional weirdo M dot Strange.
