New "Tetsujin 28" Teaser

Before I was fully occupied by Astro boy movie, I have been spending couple months with the Creative and Development team to develop a "Teaser" of most classic iconic giant robot, "Tetsujin 28", ( Iron Man 28 / Gigantor ) which is created by Mitsuteru Yokoyam 横山光輝 in 60's. I am glad that we have chance to make a CG animation test on that. I like giant robot and i really want to make a robot movie after we created Zentrix. We are going to share with public by put it on a website soon. Here is one of screenshot. : )

love-growth-cash triangle

There is a interesting love-growth-cash triangle to illustrate that most people take on new jobs, projects and hobbies for three reasons:

  1. To learn something new
  2. To pay the bills
  3. Because they love doing it

These three things fulfill some of our very basic needs—they give us stability, excitement, ways to contribute and opportunities to grow.

I watched Bolt last week, i really love it even though the story is quite simple and predictable. The characters animation is really good, all the dogs moment was being captured very good. Beautiful lighting and matte painting. I found that very entertaining, my wife kept laughing throughout the movie, we have a good time to watch that, maybe those dogs moment really remind me our dogs...

this is the biggest action sequence at the opening, i like it.
