Surreal Award Opens
Version 2's crazy surreal show open for the AICP
kind of took me by surprise. The piece is gorgeous and so full of detail that I wish I had a copy of it at full rez. The vintage style/color palette seems really attractive to me amidst the waves of CMYK & RGB palettes we are constantly being barraged with on screen. In a few sections of the open, elements go outside of the expected viewing area to reveal faux letterboxing. A neat trick, that helps to wow the eyes a little and give the piece more depth. This piece also features some amazing sound design that really helps to push the surreal angle of the animation.
It seems that I can't get enough Kim Dulaney this week. She designed this with Jon Saunders
for Stardust, it was animated by Emmett Dzieza. This is the show open for the First Boards Award.
