Something to aspire to: two animated shorts that are clearly labours of love. Christina Beard's film has a traditional narrative, a classical score, lots of action and a great mix of CGI and beautiful hand-drawing.
While Christina's MMO-like fantasy setting allows for some magical touches, Alex Blawion's Blender-produced film is a fantastic voyage that maxes out the senses: a glowing, hooded figure propels itself through crackling ice cubes, swarms of jellyfish umbrellas and a lonely, alien world. The setting reminded me a little of Stephen Baxter's Flux, in which altered humans live and swim in a magnetic plasma.
Glad you could drop by! This blog is part support group, part research institute for those who, like me, enjoy the best and the worst of sci-fi. In addition I have interests in computer graphics and independent media, and will continue to document my own adventures in filmmaking and CGI.
