Horton behind the scenes

 I previously posted few links to differents showreels of animators who worked on it but Blue Sky wasn’t too happy about them I guess as they have all been brought down. 

I saw the movie yesterday. It is really fun and the animation is really much to my liking. Really really entertaining.
The only problem I have is that I saw too many behind the scenes and trailers than I had seen pretty much all the funny animation beforehand.

Here are few links for you:

    man! we disagree one more time! i was so disappointed! the animation and the characters were great, but the story… pretty lame i think. What was the point? i was bored

    here we go! The animation! That’s all it is about Mariano ;-) Go and see “no country for old men” if you want a great story ;-)

    You might not be the kind of guy who enjoys watching a good “Tom and Jerry”

    hehe… i enjoy watching Tom and Jerry… little episodes. 5 or 10 minutes of fun animation. But not for 90 minutes!!

    ah ah ah. I found the animation so fresh with the 3d medium that I really enjoyed it. Horton was a bit overanimated for my taste but the Mayor was such a delight.

    yeah i agree on that…
    look, after several months thinking about it… i joined animation mentor! i am starting on summer. i wanted to ask you about working and doing AM at the same time… don’t you go crazy or something? it’s the only thing i am a bit concerned about.

    ah ah ;-) well it depends on your working hours. I won’t go into details but I am pretty lucky here. For class 1 and with your experience you should be fine for the first 10 weeks. It is getting tougher when you reach class 2, 3 and mainly class 4 and 6. Where are you working at the moment Mariano?

    Ah that’s great Mariano! Congratulation man. When did you start? I will have to visit you some day when the Animation Mentor schedules lightens up (no less than 12 weeks though..) 6pm at Eurocom? That’s quite unexpected. Nice to hear that they have more reasonable schedules.
