Here are a few sample lines from a work in progress story called “Bat Bot Boy”.
Also included is a couple of concept designs by the incredibly talented art director Deane Taylor.
I have no chance to once again,
be normal at the age of ten.
Like other kids who spend their day,
with games and toys and blissful play.
For I can’t do the simplest things.
I’m stuck now with these stupid wings
What am I now, I’m half a boy.
I’m no ones son, some life size toy.
Have I become a kid gone wild.
Some freaky superhero child.
Who hides by day, comes out at night,
to help the weak, and fight for right
I just re-watched the latest 2D Animated Music Video for Australian band, the Audreys latest single “Sometimes the Stars”. This has to be one of the best examples of what is possible with 2D animation.
The video was produced in Australia by Luke Jurevicius, and Directed by Ari Gibson and Jason Pamment. Its inspiring to see such a high production, and creative quality in 2D animation. The potential for great work exists when handled by talented and experienced artists, and there is no need to run to the latest trend of 3D.
Judge for yourself. Here are the links to all the info you need on this clip:
