Movie Reviews

Terrible picture quality, great contents

"While the spots featured in "Computer Animation Classics" are without any doubt classics and highly original, the picture quality is little better then VHS. This could have been a winner. But it's such low quality in execution that it's (almost) a loser."

"If you've ever wanted to see more of those computer animations that have been played at Siggraph or are played on cable in Canada then this series of DVD's is for you. Classic animations on this DVD include:Stanley and Stella in "Breaking the Ice" Quest - A Long Ray's Journey Into Light Megacycles, High Fidelity, Glider, Peppy, Work's Ant, LBS, Pencil Test, Deja Vu, Adam Powers, Chromosaurus, The Gold Series (Benson and Hedges adverts), Botco, Eurhythmy, Brilliance, Max's Place, Opera Industriel, Speeder, Dance Of The Stumblers, Balloon Guy, A Comic Zoom, Fair Play, The Little Death, Hawaiian Punch, Tony de Peltrie, Hard Woman (Mick Jagger pop video) Metafable Different styles of early character animation are presented, going all the way from 2D lines, primitive geometric shapes, smooth shaded polygon meshes to the first texture mapped characters. However, only five or so really tell a short story.My only disappointment was that there wasn't any coverage on how each animation was made (ie. behind the scenes like The Abyss DVD etc...) although the credits do mention the hardware and software used."
