....長達3分鐘的《超蛙戰士》電影預告片中,在浩瀚的宇宙,蛙人戰士、機甲AIU、空間站、艦隊、轟炸機、駕駛員、冷兵器等相互間快節奏的戰斗溶為一體,迄今 為止,這是第一部將機甲、艦隊、機器人溶為一片的星戰電影。中國京劇臉譜化的角色形象,國際化的制作水準,HD1080高清級別,國內一流的音效合成,這 一切都表明目前中國原創3維動畫電影的設計制作水平已遙遙領先。
超蛙戰士》是一部關於太空的科幻史詩,僅故事創作就歷時五六年,作品充滿了強烈的英雄主義色彩。而該片的原創特色表現在,從京劇臉譜到孩子玩的撥浪鼓,從雕樑畫棟到中國武術,點點滴滴都鮮明地烙上了“中國印”。 ....

XO...國際化的制作水準? 看過試片後很有保留 不是不支持國內原創,但是那些對於制作水準的定義似乎與外界有很大的偏差... 究竟這個徐克是否香港的那一個徐克?

AstroBoy Banner

This is the AstroBoy movie Banner I found at the bottom of Tezuka Osamu Official Site, here i screen cap the images in to sequence order, you can see the animated flash verion there. I like how the designer (from Tezuka) intergrate the Cores (Blue and Red) with the imagi logo "i". About the Logo, this is deisgnded by Tony Tang in 2000, not sure how much people like it but it connects to all of imagi animators here... I think people from outside start to regonize that, why do we need to change that?

Bell Looks To Win Hearts with “AstroBoy”

Kristen Bell—who has become a cult favorite for her roles in Heroes, Fanboys and Veronica Mars—is likely to extend her following as she lends her voice to the ultimate sci-fi franchise: She plays the new girl in Imagi Studios' upcoming 3-D animated feature-film version of the venerable Japanese Astro Boy series.

“I play Cora, who is a girl who befriends Astro when he comes down from Metro City onto the surface of Earth,” Bell told SciFi Wire. “She runs a little kind of like Peter Pan group of kids. She’s pretty tough, pretty sassy.”

Cora (Kristen Bell) befriends Astro Boy

And despite being a self-professed fan of a lot of genre properties, Bell admits she was a novice when it came to the universe of “AstroBoy.”

“I didn’t know Astro Boy at all, but now I’m immersed and have all the little toys and stuff,” she said.

As for the movie, which will debut some footage at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon, Bell says she’s seen a lot of the movie and that it looks fantastic.

“It looks amazing,” she said. “To be involved in the process is really exciting, because you see the layers that they put on, and you see when they don’t have the 3-D involved and then when they do, and you see when it’s just penciled out. It was a really interesting process.”

Bell is best-known for her work on two television series. She played the title character on “Veronica Mars” and had a recurring role as Elle on “Heroes.” She also starred in the just-released-on-DVD movie “Fanboys” where she memorably dressed up in the famous metal bikini from “Return of the Jedi.”
