The Beatles Rock Band..

I'm currently obsessed with the animation for the new Rock Band (made by Pete Candeland at Passion Pictures). It's such simple animation but with so many great tricks your eye can't see the strings. Things like blurred focus, CG instruments and props, fast camera moves, quick cutting and gorgeous held drawings make this some of the best animation I've ever seen. The shame is that there isn't a feature in our near future in this style. I swear it could save 2D but I'm sure that money is currently being spent on the next CG feature based on a children's book with shrill celebrity voices.

maybe not?





..and the closer

Holy crap, these are AMAZING!!! The music is great, the visuals are astonishing. The blue elephant creeps me out though.

I too am obsessed with this animation and couldn't agree more, 2d could easily be saved with something like this! it's an amazing sequence!

i totally agree. i've probably watched it 100 times since it came out. EVERYTHING about it is well-done. Candeland and Valley really do need to get into feature or series work so we're not just getting just these tiny bits of great work.

I agree, I wish I could see a feature film like this.
