I went to a Ratatouille screening in Munich yesterday!
The Movie comes to the theaters in Germany in October but indac in co-operation with Buena Vista made it possible to do this event with a Q&A session with Andrew Schmidt (Animator at PIXAR) after the screening. The short film 'Lifted" was screened before Ratatouille.

I have to say WOW! I think pixar pushed 3D animation to the next level.
I was blown away right from the beginning. The story was great, the character designs were awesome, the environments where beautiful, and the animations were out of the world! The trip to munich was totally worth it!

CG Challenge: "Strange Behavior"

I decided to join the new CG Challenge on CGSociety. The topic is "Strange Behavior". Click here for my challenge thread.

This challenge draws on one of the most popular artistic themes – unusual behaviors and relationships. Whether it’s a giant robot admiring a fluffy teddy or a sheep in wolf's clothing; a cow that thinks it’s a helicopter or a warrior going into battle dressed as a giant pink bunny – they all make you stop and think. They also stimulate discussion – what one person finds funny another thinks is demented. Unusual juxtapositions and humor allow us an unprecedented freedom of expression. They can also bring us closer as we laugh together and at ourselves.

The Challenge ends on October 29th 2007. For more information, check the Challenge Page.

This is gonna be fun!
