Mowgli animation by Milt Kahl

Milt Kahl (Mowgli) from Victor Ens on Vimeo.

I don't know if this has been posted around, but it's always inspirational to look at some well-drawn animation. And of course Milt Kahl is the king of well-drawn animation! Check out the weight, timing and solid draftsmanship in this clip! We are not worthy. While you're looking at that, I'll be busy trying to get together some photos from CG Overdrive to post. Stay tuned!

I'll be at CG Overdrive in Singapore next week

If you're planning on being in Singapore next week, why not swing by the annual CG Overdrive Conference? I'll be giving a couple of animation lectures there, along with fellow Pixar Animator John Collins. Alex Woo from Pixar's story department will also be speaking there, as will be plenty of other industry professionals, and it should be a good time. I'm looking forward to some BBQ stingray, myself!

Partly Cloudy on iTunes

If you've seen UP, then you've (hopefully) also seen the charming short film that precedes it, Partly Cloudy. Of course it looks best on the big screen - and it's pretty neat in 3D, too - but you can purchase and download it from the iTunes store right now!
