'The Panda Rabbit' by Randy Rosario

A unique and intriguing film has come to our attention. It's called "The Panda Rabbit" and originates from the mind and skills of Randy D. Rosario. It's a mixture of live action, puppetry, animation and stop motion. The project started out as a poem but evolved into a 6 minute short film that was completed in a year.

The Panda Rabbit is hybrid animal who is not liked by the normal pandas because he is different. All he wants is someone he can talk to and the only friend he has is his television, but over time it possesses him. The Panda Rabbit was shot entirely with a 7d, and edited / animated on Adobe After Effects.

Take a look at The Panda Rabbit and feel free to visit the film's supporting sites, including the film's website and Facebook page. Here's the link to the Forum topic. Enjoy the video...

Mars or Bust - Nasa's MSL Curiosity Rover

The animation that comes from Nasa and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California is nothing less than astounding. Take a look at this film highlighting the latest mission to Mars, the Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity which was launched late last year on November 26 and is expected to land on the Red Planet in August, 2012. It's difficult if not impossible to distinguish this animation from reality. Indeed, if this footage was shown in an era prior to CG animation, I'm sure viewers would be convinced they were seeing the real thing as many would be even today.  For more info on the Mars Science Laboratory visit this link.

We have interesting members on the AN Forums and I think it would be a good idea to start a new feature on our homepage whereby we can call attention to these talented individuals, studios, and special organizations that help make our business a better place for all.

Let's begin with JK Riki's Animator Island - A resource for animators featuring weekly tips, tricks, and secrets of animation. JK has been engaging in several conversations and livening things up. His blog not only publishes articles and animation tips by JK, it's open to others who would like to contribute their content to the site.

Perhaps the most innovative and interesting animated films coming out lately are originating in France. Case in point, a feature that was released this past November entitled 'Le Tableau'.

Directed by Jean-Francois Laguionie, Armelle Glorennec and Eric Jacquot, and set in the 1930's, Le Tableau (The Painting) involves a group of misfit characters from unfinished paintings by a French artist, who embark on a journey to find their creator. Produced by Blue Spirit, the film mixes CG animation with digital 2D. The French-Belgian co-production is hoping to secure US distribution in 2012. Click here for more details. Enjoy the trailer...
