Rafael Grampá is a superbly talented artist who has done some work for both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. Go ahead and check out his Flickr to see some of his amazing work. He has a very unique style that definitely sets himself apart from most artists.
Recently, Grampá worked with Absolut and fans on Facebook to write a story about a private eye who sees ideas. He then teamed with Red Knuckles animation to transition his 2D concept into three-dimensional animation. The result? This beautiful short that creates a world and character I would love to see more of. Take a look for yourself.[vimeo:http://vimeo.com/89501438%5D
This video game inspired short is both beautiful and tragic. Take a look and be amazed.
From writer/director Saman Kesh, this short creates a sci-fi environment and even a sort of gameplay mechanic that has me hooked. There is also a 3 minute prequel, here, which only makes me want to see a feature length film set in this world.
Mickey Mouse has been in only a handful of shorts in the past thirty years. Quite a difference from a character that started his rise in shorts (Get it? Because he wears shorts). Disney has now set up to release a full series of shorts within the next few months, but there’s a catch. Unlike previously shorts, these shorts will be featured on TV and online instead of the movie theater.
The first short was released yesterday, titled Croissant de Triomphe. There are some great gags and I’m absolutely in love with the art style that they have chosen.
Scoot past the jump to watch the short.
Not too long ago, I wrote a review for the Disney/Pixar film, Wreck-It Ralph. I loved the movie, but I also gushed over the short which showed before the feature. It is a beautiful film which matches computer animation with traditional animation perfectly. If you didn’t have a chance to watch the short in theaters, Disney has done you a favor and put the short online.
Let me know what you thought of it. Also, I’ve been watching a lot of amazing shorts lately, so I may try to do a few posts with great shorts of many varieties. Let me know if you’ve seen (or made) any and if I like it, I’ll post it and share it.
