CG Animated Short: Burning Safari

Brother Henry wrote in to let me know about this very cool CG Short, Burning Safari.

Now try doing that with Machinima, eh? Though you could do the Rough and Final Layouts with Machinima techniques, in a fashion similar to how Phil Tippett used Star Wars action figures and fake trees to film a rough version of the Speeder Bike sequence in Return of the Jedi.

I really love this film and I spent sometime thinking about it and I think it is feasible to do in real-time, the caveat of course being that it takes a lot of talent.

Despite all their collective fear and angst over motion capture, I think animators are going to be more important, not less in the future.

I like your break-down of Burning Safari! Yes, I agree, a lot of this could be done in real-time, with clever character and camera rigging once the tools get there.

Animators will still be important, but lets hope they aren't relegated to cleaning up and polishing noisy mocap data.
