I've not really been that interested in the animated films Disney has been releasing over the past few years but the more I see of their new animated film Tangled the more excited I am about watching it. Although I have only seen short clips I think the animation and the way it looks is pretty amazing. It has even been getting some pretty good press from Cartoon Brew.

Also an interesting video on the process of creating the hair used in Tangled.

Tangled Clip first seen on the On Animation Blog

Making Of Clip first seen on Spungella.

LMNO The Cancelled Steven Spielberg Game

This is a target render of a cancelled game called LMNO that was to be a collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Electronic Arts. Although the animation is a bit rough visually it is really nice. What I find most interesting about the project and what the gameplay would be based around is that the 2 main characters wouldn't be able to communicate using words. So all of the interaction and communication between the characters would be done through gestures.  

The idea of 2 characters communicating non verbally and only with gestures is something that is possibly going to be the basis for the short film I am part of for the masters course.

It is a shame that LMNO is not going to be made as it would be interesting to see how this would have worked especially within an interactive environment.
