I was invited to the beta of Lagoa.com (then called TeamUp) several months ago, and even in that early stage it blew my mind. As I toyed with a test scene, I couldn’t help feeling that I was staring into the future of CG — or at least a very interesting aspect of its future.
So what is it?
Paris-based Blackmeal loves Marvel so much, they decided to make an homage to the company’s 74-year history of creating inspiring characters and telling thrilling stories. We asked Blackmeal a little bit about the project:
Quick Q&A with Blackmeal
Was this a project for a client? Or did you do this purely out of love for Marvel?
It looks like it is mostly traditional animation. Is there any CG involved? If so, how?
Was it difficult figuring out how to portray all of the Marvel characters? How did you design each of them?
Thomas Lecomte (animation supervisor) is amazing. He chose 11 characters and wrote a screenplay in a few days. After that, you cannot really explain … it just came naturally. Marvel inspires us.
