Le Gouffre

This short animation, Le Gouffre, was created by just 3 animators who took two years bringing it to life. It has won a number of awards including Best Animated Short at three film festivals and Official Selection at about 35 more. The quality of the finished work is amazing, from the oil painting textures to [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies we get Predestination, based upon a 1959 short story by Robert A.Heinlein, All You Zombies. This very convoluted time travel tale is the more-or-less sequel to the earlier Heinlein story, By His Bootstraps. The other film this week is In Your Eyes, an award winning supernatural romance by Joss Whedon, is pretty much [...]

Frozen Fever is coming

Sadly the new animation, Frozen Fever, is a short rather than a feature length project. It will be the opening presentation before the live action version of Cinderella in theaters on March 13. Since I was going to be there anyways for the movie, this is pure bonus fun.

More Minions, Please!

Another trailer has been released for Minions, the new animated adventure telling the story about what they got up to while waiting for Gru to come along. Quite frankly, these little guys are about 80% of what made me fall in love with the Despicable Me franchise in the first place, so I have been [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies, Dracula Untold is a rather interesting variation of the Vampire legend, with Vlad Tepes portrayed as a good man doing whatever it takes to save his people and family from destruction. The twisted comedy Hector and the Search for Happiness stars Simon Pegg as a psychologist who needs to find out if happiness [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

The animated romantic comedy The Book of Life is being released this week, with a unique visual style from Guillermo del Toro. Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, also animated, has Aquaman having to choose sides between Atlantis and the Justice League when war with the surface breaks out. The one unanimated selection this time, The [...]

Home Sweet Home

This award winning short animation was put together by four very talented animators at Supinfocom Arles School of Digital Filmmaking over the course of their final year. It pulled in a ton of awards, and probably earned them job offers as well. It is another gem I found over at the CGI Bros. Channel.

Something to Do: Movies

This week we get Strange Magic, an animated film about the culture clash and confusion that ensues when goblins and fairies find each other for the first time. Both the animation quality and the story look first rate, I will be in the theater for this one.

Something to Watch: Discs

We have a couple of good choices in the Movie category this week. The Zero Theorem is the latest sci-fi film from Terry Gilliam. As usual with his films, you can watch it as a twisted adventure or you can enjoy the more cerebral aspects. Luc Besson’s tale of forced evolution, Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson [...]

Reaping For Dummies

This tasty little animation, Reaping For Dummies was a graduation project made by five students from the 3D design and animation course at Idèfagskolen in Tønsberg Norway in 2013. It is just one of a huge collection of great animations you can watch over at the CGI Bros. Channel.
