Annecy 2010: Red River Bay

It’s the story of a boy who tries to escape his daily struggle by means of his creativity. Or perhaps he tries to steal the dragon’s balls. In both cases, the dragon is not very pleased.

Red River Bay is one of the trailers made by the students of the Gobelins for the 2010 Annecy Festival.

The film is the work of Rémi Bastie, Nicolas Dehghani, Rachid Guendouze, Maxime Mary, Jeremy Pires. Sound design: Gérard Labady.

Something Left, Something Taken

Hey there! Pardon the little break. I thought I could start the week with this “animated dark comedy about a vacationing couple’s encounter with a man they believe to be the Zodiac Killer.” I guess that happens at least once to everyone of us.

Something Left, Something Taken is an awesome and crafty animated short film created by Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata AKA Tiny Inventions. Be warned: every time you’ll blink your eyes, you lose something cool.

Dragon Age: Sacred Ashes

For those who use to think that the Sean Connery voiced beast from Dragonheart was the dumbest dragon ever (this could be an idea for a Facebook group…), here’s finally a serious new candidate for the title.

Dragon Age, is a computer role playing game developed by BioWare. It will be published by Electronic Arts on November 2009.

The cinematic animation should be the work of Blur Studio, even though at the moment I can’t be 100% sure of this. Will update when possible.
