I find the movement of this character very appealing. The animators have managed to capture a feeling of powerful precision while at the same time keeping him unpredictable and reckless. I read somewhere creating contradiction in your characters adds appeal, and while I don’t remember reading to put it directly into their movement, this would be a shining example if that were the case.
A bit late but I really love this guy’s work. I look forward to seeing him in Annecy again!
This trailer is for the much anticipated (by me) series that is a sequel to the Avatar: The Last Airbender series.
There’s some great morph animation in this ad, very smooth stuff. I’d love to be able to tell you what medium this is. To me it looks like CG paying homage to Stop Motion (a la Flushed Away), but I could be totally wrong. Any information on the artists/studio involved would be nice so I can give credit where it’s due.
Update: Tom Mathieson has informed me the studio behind this ad is Nexus Productions.
