Obviously Minkyu Lee does. This has the look of what we tend to call "classical animation". By the way, Minkyu painted all the backgrounds himself. There are only 6 key animators listed in his credits, all are friends and fellow CalArts grads with the notable exception of James Baxter(I think his work is immediately apparent in the short trailer). In additon, a dozen more artists not listed below, all of an obviously high caliber, helped finish it on their own time and in addition to their day jobs.
This is really something else.
Adam and dog Trailer from Minkyu on Vimeo.
Here are the credits as listed on the trailer's page:
Written and directed by Minkyu Lee
Heidi Jo Gilbert
Thomas Ethan Harris
A complete list of everyone who contributed is on the film's Tumblr page, which is also where I got the accompanying artwork I've posted.
Have to follow on this one!
Wow, so beautiful atmosphere and animation...very magic!
There's always hope for hand drawn animation. Take a look at the website, trailer and FASCINATING blog for my friend Neil's new film The Last Belle. It is inspiring.
This is intriguing ! I can hardly wait to see the whole film.
I hope eventually someone can pull off a similar sort of project of feature-length, if they can get enough financing up front to keep a small group like this employed for a few years and get the all important distribution deal inked before commencing on the production. The talent and the want-to is there. We all know that good quality hand-drawn feature could be made by a dedicated group like this for way less than is typically spent by the big studios. The tough nut to crack remains securing good distribution so that the finished film will be seen by a wide audience once the film is completed. It seems like a lot of independent animated films sink quickly at the box-office because the marketing and distribution muscle isn't behind them.
Interesting. Characterless, but as a moving postcard, interesting. Pretty pictures only go so far. I hope there's a story.
I wonder what you think of this:
"Characterless, a moving postcard.. pretty pictures only go so far.. I hope there's a story".. probably the same type of b.s. this trailer from Jean Luc Goddard got from nameless critics like yourself
obviously someone needs to watch more films outside of animation..
Hey Anonymous loser,
1.Go watch Ratatouille.
2.Skip ahead to the part about the life of a critic.
3.Hold a mirror up to your fat face.
4.Go cry when you realize you have no purpose in the world compared to people who actually create art.
Thank you that is all.
