Yes Virginia, it’s another awesome Zune film. This time it’s by Cory Godbey whose unique method of frame-by-frame animation lends a particular charm to the story of a man who wouldn’t share his gift. Using the early animated film Prince Achmed by Lotte Reininger as a reference for the silhouetted character animation, Cory also adds a layer of atmosphere which works really well with the stylized illustration and limited animation. The piece ends up decidedly old-fashioned and organic looking which is very very helpful to the story.There’s lots more information on his process and the production on the spot at Cory’s blog right here.
And the space-rock soundtrack is by Maps.
Nice job again by 72 and Sunny and Cory on this one. Let’s all write them a nice Thank You note.
