"The Passenger" by Chris Jones - one man, 8 years

Postby Charles » Wed Dec 15, 2010 1:59 am

Here's an animated film that's a must see.

It's called "The Passenger" and the creative force behind it is a fellow by the name of Chris Jones.

He lives in Australia and apparently, it took him 8 years to complete working by himself.

Take a look at what he was able to acccomplish.

You can also visit his website, see development artwork for the film, and follow the chronicles of how he was able to produce such an amazing animated short film all by himself over this long time period.

As of this writing, The Passenger has had 773,135 views on YouTube since November 2009.

Kinda reminds me of Gareth Edwards, the director of the Magnolia release Monsters, a low-budget sci-fi film still in select theaters. Before that movie, he did History Channel-type specials for the BBC--all by himself and his home computer.

8 years it took Mr. Jones. It'll likely take me that long to finish these passion projects I've been slaving away on for the past year . . .
