TinTin Secret of the Unicorn - WOW!!

So I just got back from watching TinTin (in IMAX 3D) and WHOA! What a movie!!

Absolutely loved the story (well of course, it's TinTin), and more importantly the storytelling. To me, they heightened the movie several levels above the comic (the desert scenes were simply breathtaking). Even the characters, barring the button eyes, looked almost exactly like those in the comic (loved Nestor and Bianca Castafiore) and thankfully didn't look awkward and dead, although at times I couldn't help wishing it was all animated instead of mo-cap. Thanks Spielberg and Jackson AND WETA for retaining the essence of the comic and yet making it a visual treat! I simply can't wait for the next part.

Here's the making of the movie. :)

BEAT short film

Hi folks,

Been a little while since i posted. Was out for vacation and was busy with work. This film gave me the chills. And its his first hand at 3d animation. I dunno what to say. Lovely direction and storytelling. Its a pure inspiration for everybody who has been thinking of making short films and never did. Hats off

Who's your daddy? (2D animation WIP)

Hey monsters, trying to do some 2D now. Here's a little clip that I keyed so far. I plan to add breakdowns next
before inbetweening it. Do lemme know if something strikes out as odd. My main concern is the
volume control. Thanks!

BTW, the video gets cropped on the blog, so try zooming in.

P.S. It's really difficult to find time to do personal work while doing a full time job haha! I'll try and finish it
as soon as possible though.
