I just posted this up over at Drawn!, the fun multi-author blog I contribute to from time to time:
What's this? A work-in-progress clip of Henry Selick's newest short film Moongirl? Well sure, I'll take a gander. Hey, wait a sec -- that's not stop-motion, that's CG! Yes, it's true, Selick's upcoming short is, indeed, animated by computer, not by hand with puppets. But I don't have any fear, as Selick is one of the best animation directors out there, so I'm sure the project is in good hands. The look and style of this clip is pretty nifty, but I'm not completely digging the shape of the boy's head when he turns. However, I'm forgiving, with it being a work-in-progress. Based on this clip, the animation looks very nice, and the story is bound to be interesting.
And if you're wondering just what the heck is Laika, that's Vinton Studios' new name.
By the way, Jared sent this link to me, suggesting that it needed "the Ward touch," but I know better. He got distracted by something shiny. Again.
Thanks for the heads-up, Jared! Now get back to work!
