Here's another great short film from the French animation school, Gobelins. This one got a lot of attention at SIGGRAPH, though it's been floating around for a while. Great animation, and the rigging on the Octopi is pretty impressive. This clip might not be on YouTube for long, so enjoy it while you can!

Better quality here:

The Dark Knight: Early Joker Concept Art

These early pre-Heath Ledger Joker conceptual designs can be found in The Art of The Dark Knight. I was shocked to discover that the Joker design they eventually settled on, actually seems a lot tamer than some of the early concepts. Though the hair dosent look that cool

This and that no2

*Whopper FREAKOUT! (Ghetto Version 2.0):

*Crystal Castles Remixes "Bloc Party - Hunting For Witches"

*Fantastic artwork from Fleet street scandals

*More art from Picturesonwalls.

*Michael Bay's Rejected "The Dark Knight" Script. Apparently, Michael Bay wrote an unsolicited script for The Dark Knight that was ultimately rejected by Warner Bros.
The worst part is that I would propebly gone and see it if it got made =D

Here are some choice excerpts.

*I love the fact that this guy is in his own queue ;)

*Poster and B-roll from Olivers newest movie W. I got to say. I cant wait to see this. Its from director Oliver Stone. He has apparently made statement long ago that he would make a two movie deal around 9/11. He released the film World Trade Center a couple a years ago showing it form a american point of view then he was supposed to make another movie. This time from the middle-eastern point of view, but then something happened with the company that was paying for this and something really ugly must have happend because now hes making a movie about W himselfs. Josh Brolin looks amazing as the partyman though


Finally, a movie where it might make sense for a collection of commemorative yard silhouettes to come with the special edition DVD.


* Fracking awesome tshirt!
Propably need to bulk up a bit before I buy it though.. Still, its a goal

* 10 year running and it still the funniest ting I have ever seen. Heres for another 10! Now with 30% more slowmotion

Body Armor + Fashion Design = Armorni?

Who says protecting yourself from sniper attacks or chemical warfare needs to be ugly business? Certainly not Dutch designer Tim Smit. His “Urban Security Suit” will be all the rage in a war zone near you. Made of stylish neoprene and strategically lined with body molded kevlar, this runway show stopper will be THE must have accessory for your next war, skirmish, struggle, conflict, combat zone or civil strife you find yourself in or starting. Aeon Flux eat your heart out.

Designer: Tim Smith

The Last Guy Promotional Clip Now With English Subtitles!

An English translated version of the interview with The Last Guy's "developers" speaking Bengali — tongue planted firmly in cheek. The actual developers are Sony's Japan Studio and responsible for the PSP's Work Time Fun. Pretty sure they don't have a goat in their office, either. Well, maybe they do. Who knows.

And CGI heads continue to creep me the fuck out.

Although these are some of the better facial tests Ive seen in, its still weird. Pendulum Studios have just opened their facial animation division, "Alter Ego" that will provide facial support for games to movies.

Disney’s ‘The Princess And The Frog’ Teaser Trailer

It’s been a long, long time since Disney has walked in the realm of 2D animated movies (barring any sequels and unknowns), but they are returning to their old ways — if only for one nostalgic rendezvous — and here is our first look at that return, The Princess and the Frog.

Check out the teaser trailer below.

From the heart of Lousiana’s mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a trumpet playing alligator, a love sick Cajun firefly, and a host of other charming characters at every turn.

The Princess and the Frog is special in its own right as it is (surprisingly) the first time a Disney movie will have an African American princess. Anika Noni Rose will voice Princess Tiana, who will be joined by the voice cast of John Goodman and Keith David. Ron Clements and John Musker, who both wrote and directed Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Hercules, have again written and directed this film and even Randy Newman is involved, so they seem to have the proper ingredients to surprise us.
