'Der Turm' - On The Road animation project
Written by Charles   
Thursday, 24 May 2012 16:17

This is a cool way of creating animated films. Take it On The Road as Lucia Cernekova and Peter Luha have done. In this film, "Der Turm", they used stop motion along with hand created drawing and painting to come up with a unique and intriguing visual experience. Backed by original music, Der Turm is an ode to the East German people who attempted to escape their oppressive regime by crossing the Baltic Sea. It's been screening at a series of international festivals across Europe since March and will continue into June of this year. For more info about the film click here. You can also see another film created by Lucia and Peter by heading to this topic on the Forums.

In the news yesterday, a company by the name of SpaceX did something that has never been done before. They launched a rocket to resupply the International Space Station. In the past this was always handled by NASA. Now the private sector is being utilized to do what a government agency was doing before.

Check out this excellent CG animation of the new SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket technology and how it functions.

Nicolai Troshinsky is initiating an interesting animation project. It's an innovative rhythmic short-film which uses the effect of extremely shallow depth of field that changes in synchronization with sound and music. The film is in progress and he's offering pre-orders and other nice things to raise some money for the shooting. It's tough to find funding in Spain at this time so he's turning to the animation community for help.

Here's Nicolai to explain in further detail the nature of his project "Astigmatismo"...

This trailer came to us via an intriguing topic concerning the future of traditional 2D hand drawn animation. ANer LongyTV brought it to our attention. It's India's first stereoscopic fully animated film, a devotional movie based on the childhood story of Lord Krishna. It's directed by Vikram Veturi with music by Shantanu Moitra. "Krishna Aur Kans" hails from Reliance Animation which is the studio that brought us the beautifully produced "Little Krishna" CG animated series. Take a look at this impressive trailer. It highlights the quality of Indian animation.

Gundarr !!!

If you're looking for an offbeat Internet cartoon featuring a gun wielding barbarian doof, an evil wizard nemesis and scantily clad damsels, among other assorted oddities, your search has come to an end with Gundarr.

The creation of two animators, one of whom has been a member of the AN Forums for many years, Canadian animators Corey McDaniel and Ted Wilson do a great job producing this Web based series distributed through Mondo Media. It's amazing to see a cartoon of this quality coming out on a regular basis from only two animators. I'm developing a dedicated topic to Gundarr on the Forums at this link, archiving all the Gundarr cartoons that've come out so far with more on the way. Gundarr co-creator Corey McDaniels is interacting with us on the topic. You can also follow Gundarr's exploits, news and developments through the cartoon's Facebook wall and also on Twitter.

Gundarr is a great example of just how good Web based cartoons can be. Here's a look at the very first Gundarr cartoon which debuted just about a year ago on June 1, 2011. Enjoy "Duck a la Rage". May not be suitable for small children or for the workplace.
