When 3-D meets 2-D, magic happens.

3-D

Along with architecture, I believe being an animator is something else I would have done in another lifetime.

Amazing stop motion.

 I love stop motion animation. Is difficult and always beautiful when done right. This particular one is as sweet as they come.

My all time favorite Anime Fight scene. (Rock Lee vs Gara)

Most of us usually have something the listen to, or watch to get the adrenaline flowing. Some listen to rock , rap or watch some fight sequence. I have a good library of adrenaline inducing tracks on my iPhone. But the one visual adrenaline serum I treasure is Rock Lee vs Gara from Naruto. I remember watching this episode during my undergraduate program in my dorm room. I was beyond impressed. I watched this particular scene more than 10 times that day. It was just fantastic.
First off you have the originally unassuming character Rock Lee, who you expect to be mutilated by the brooding Gara. Only to find out that Rock Lee is one powerful taijutsu monster. Man! this scene was just spot on. The animation itself felt even smoother and more put together than the rest of the scenes. I am thinking is been more than 4 years since I first watched this episode, and I still rate it king among kings in anime fight sequences.

My Rating : ★★★★★

Going west

Not really sure what the guy is talking about. But I really respect and appreciate the amount of work and attention to detail in this stop motion animation (At least I think it is stop motion animation).

I love NPR!

On one of my annoying commutes to work, I tuned into NPR because I couldn't stand the choice of mainstream songs harassing my ears on the other channels. As usual there was an interesting conversation going on when I tuned in. This time it was about human behavior under certain conditions. A particularly interesting one was that people found it very difficult to walk in a straight line when they can't see. So I a made mental note to look this up once I got to my cubicle. And I found this awesome animation that did a pretty good job of narrating experiments that have been carried out on this observation.
Enjoy

The best of both worlds.

Great animations.
100% CG animation. The most realistic CG creation I have ever seen.

Super smooth 2-D animation. Super smooth animation. Tells a great story too.

Some people have a thing for paintings, antiques or sculptures. I personally love great animation. To me great animation doesn't have to be anything mainstream like Pixar's Toy Story... which by the way is a fantastic franchise.
