Wagner's "Seigfried" - Animated Trailer

Postby Charles » Sat Aug 06, 2011 9:17 pm

Check out this video and prepare to be blown away by the quality of the production. Traditional, hand drawn animation no less.

I was hanging out with friends this afternoon and among the group was a professional musician who tours with Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' live theatrical ensemble. We started talking about classical music and when I brought up the German composer Wagner, he referred me to this video.

I don't know much about it except that it's a trailer for a film based upon Wagner's opera "Seigfreid". It was animated by Pendragon Imageworks.

It's astoundingly good. Watch it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I think this animated trailer was created to promote a graphic novel. I hope I'm wrong, cause it looks like it would be an awesome film. I believe this guy is the principle artist:http://alexaliceblog.blogspot.com/
