Minuscule: Computer Animation Done Correctly!

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 21, 2006 in Animation |

Well I gone on many a rant on how sad the state of computer animation is these days in Hollywood (with perhaps the exception of Pixar). However recently I came across a television series called Minuscul from France by an animation studio called Futurikon. Here’s a good description of the show from the TV France International website:

“Imagine a blend between a National Geographic documentary and a Tex Avery cartoon. A combination of 3D characters and live footage, with no commentary or dialog. Based on this offbeat starting point, the series will be zooming in to the grassroots level of the counrtyside to give viewers a bird’s eye view of insects’ day-to-day existence, distorted through a burlesque, yet poetic lens.”

Of course you can also take a look for yourself via the magic of YouTube:

In an ideal world someone in Hollywood would cancel Shrek the Third and allow Futurikon to make a feature film out of Minuscule.
