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

I don't know much about it except that it's a trailer for a film based upon Wagner's opera "Seigfreid". A musician who tours with Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' live theatrical ensemble showed it to me today. It was animated by Pendragon Imageworks. It's astoundingly good. Watch it and you'll see what I'm talking about. You can access the topic on the AN Forums as well.

Politizoid

Scott Line was a student of mine going all the way back to when he was just thirteen years old. Today he's a grown man and working as a CG Character Animator for a studio called PolitiZoid.

They create online content for the Web, and are featured in TV spots on major networks. They're attempting to parlay their successes by developing awareness in the public eye and animation community as to who they are and what they're doing.

One of their cartoons was just featured on the popular online show The Young Turks. The content is controversial, as political cartoons often are, but the production quality of their work is very good. Check out the video, plus follow the link to the AN Forums as we develop the topic further.
