I mean we never had a film that started out with a war. We do here. The second act is all set in a gladiator ring."

We are looking for a skilled illustrator for quick realistic sketch/drawings of children doing different activities. (Playing on the Beach, going Trick or Treat, Surfing). The drawings will be used to show new concepts and ideas to the clients. The drawings are more sketchbook like than final illustrations.
The project requires a very good realistic drawing style with a good sense of perspective. Be able to come up with quick ideas and be enthusiastic to work in a team.
If your are interested please contact email@example.com, 415 362-5505.
Thanks a lot for your help!!
One of the goals with this piece of animation was to investigate the some of the limits of the 3D media, and how close we could bring it to a 2D feel in terms of broadness and flexibility.One of the very important inspirations that made us think along these lines was the work of the swedish company Meindbender. Particularly the short "football vs. rabbit" was a very helpfull source of inspiration.For the animation we used maya and blender (anisculpt) and for comp we used Fusion.
...The animation Workshop is also responsible for the two shorts "Out of a Forest" and "Vegeterrible" from this year, which you might also want to check out.(very shortly they will also publish "stop mother f*cker")
