Movie Reviews

Pretty good collection of CG animation shorts.

"I have no idea what the initial reviewer means when she says;"If you ever played a video game back in the late '80s or early '90s you'll get a sense of what Computer Animation Festival has to offer."Oh well. Anyway, this DVD is pretty decent if you are a die-hard CG fan. Here are a few of them described;The End - My favorite animation on this disc! The academy-award nominated animation created by Chris Landreth (who later made academy-award winning Bingo) turns reality on it's head in a way that really can only be done with computer animation and motion capture. Hilarious!Sleepy Guy - Very funny cartoonish animation by PDI animator Raman Hui, who worked on Antz.Liberation and Let There Be Light - These are two music videos produced by the same animation company for Pet Shop Boys and Mike Oldfield. Fairly cheesy animation, but the music mixes very well, especially in the Mike Oldfield video.Fluffy - A classic twisted HASH animation. It's amazing that this software is responsible such great animation work as this yet it's so cheap and doesn't seem as widely known.Arnie and Birnie - Seriously twisted character animation of a dog and a pesky flee. Mercury - Remember the classic BMW commercial showing a bit of liquid traveling over a dimly blue-light figure vaguely resembling a nude female body? Well, this is it!Still Life - Funny animation of fruits being attacked on a still life painting by hungry silverware.Word Play - Nicely modeled animation by Topix for an Oreo Cookie commercial, I believe.Orbit - This is an in-house animation by Softimage and is used as a tutorial for people learning to use the software."Stand By Me" - This animation would be impressive if the character was done on a computer, but no - it's just some guy with makeup standing in front of a blue screen..."
Good for a few laughs but it is interesting

"given that I would rank "A Bugs Life" a 5 star, this collection of short films was appetizing but seemed short with a running time of 60 min. Had some good animation and creativeness, the one titled "Fluffy" was the best being funny."
