The Simpsons Halloween Opening Credits

Guillermo del Toro’s take on The Simpson’s opening credits.
Lots of nods to horror classics but my favourite one here is The Birds. Check it out:

See The Real Models For The Archer Characters


If you’ve not seen Archer before, I highly recommend it! Archer is a secret agent working for his mother’s agency ISIS. He is brash, obnoxious, a charmer and outrageous! The characters are hilarious, every single one of them.

What’s also great about this show is the animation. It’s Sterling work!

I stumbled on this webpage which shone some light as to where the animators get their character work from.

P.S. This show is definitely NOT for kids.

New Discovery Found!

Ok not really a real discovery but I wanted to share this brilliant digital art of what a real Smurf might look like.

Forbidden Friendship [HTTYD]

Just done watching Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this film. I would say Dreamworks is doing great work in catching up with PIXAR in the Box Office sales and have always found their animated films to be of extremely high quality (even going so far as to write an essay about The Prince of Egypt for my degree). HTTYD didn’t really appeal to me via the trailer when it first came out at the cinema, but I guess I had forgotten the ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ rule and by-passed the movie. I added it to my LOVEFilm list sometime later and when it arrived I still couldn’t be that bothered to watch it. But… it was brilliant! The animation is astounding, but the film has a lot of what PIXAR has to a fine finesse – heart! The scene where the lead character bonds with the dragon is an absolute highlight. Amazing attention to detail, real emotion and a beautiful soundtrack. Click here for said scene via YouTube.

Funny Animation

Simple but hilarious. Let’s begin 2011 on a funny note… Link

Salad Fingers

This animated series is utterly terrifying. Perhaps it’s just me, but I was seriously creeped out by this. I’ve watched the first three episodes, all the while thinking to myself ‘what the hell is the animator on?’

Despite this, I felt compelled to blog it to here the creepiness with the world. Watch Salad Fingers here.
