“Seoul Station” - South Korean Animated Zombie Outbreak Film Coming To Singapore Screens

WIKI PLOT: "Taking place in and around Seoul station, a man sleeping rough is the catalyst for a zombie apocalypse. Through this a young runaway woman must try to survive in a world that sees her as disposable." (Wiki)

IMDB PLOT: ”Several groups of people try to survive a zombie pandemic that unleashes itself in downtown Seoul.” (IMDb)

Launched August 18th in South Korea is the animated movie “SEOUL STATION” - which is essentially a prequel to the live-action film Train to Busan by the same director, Sang-ho Yeon, with this an hour and a half animated feature starring the voices of Ryu Seung-ryong (as Dad), Shim Eun-kyung (as Daughter) and Lee Joon (as Boyfriend).

Prior to the launch, the film was shown at the 2016 Edinburgh Film Festival - circa June 2016 - and the 34th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). The trailer is reposted below for your gawking pleasures…

“Animated Zomibes” = I’d like to watch that! With the success that Train To Busan has seen on Singapore’s screens, “Seoul Station” has since been scheduled to debut on SG screens (via Golden Village) on September 22nd! Would be extremely interesting to see how this viewing-experience combo works ... :)

“MEI’S SMOOTHIE SHOP” sees Reaper trying to score a bowl of shaved-ice treats and the adversities he had to go thru (Do Not Scroll Down and have the video spoiled by my screenshots:p). Overwatch characters in full=on “chili” design and animated by bilibill FTW!

Overwatch Animated Short #5 - “The Last Bastion”

Explore the origin story of Overwatch’s inquisitive transforming robot in their fifth animated short: “The Last Bastion”! Looks like quite the nod to Studio Ghibli here too, methinks!

Providing a visual and storytelling experience based on the characters, standing apart, while promoting their video game - has truly outdone themselves, IMHO!

The Boy Who Learned to Fly | Usain Bolt

WHAT-IS: "Based on true events from Usain Bolt’s life, The Boy Who Learned To Fly is an animated short film showcasing his unique story and what drives him as an elite athlete. From humble beginnings in a Jamaican schoolyard to his ascendence on the world stage, Bolt finds a way to fly past the pressure. By keeping it light and overcoming the weight of fame he finds the joy of running, fulfilling his destiny as the fastest man alive." (moonbotstudios.com)
Presented by Gatorade, this is a Moonlit Studios production. Usain Bolt plans to retire after this year’s Rio Olympics too tho, so this seems like a nice way to send him off (not that this was the intention of the short tho :p).

IMPOSSIBLE BOTTLES pt 2 by Rafael Varona

Artwork by Amsterdam, Netherlands-based Illustrator & Animator Rafael Varona (www.rafael-varona.com), with this animated gif done for his "Impossible Bottles" series, viewable on his B!
"Nearly two years ago I started a project called "Impossible bottles", which is an ongoing series showing animated worlds kept in what appears to be a vessel. As for the original impossible bottles they show objects that don´t really seem to fit through the mouth of the bottle. Now I was finally able to take some time off to focus on a new set of animations. Unlike the meditative atmosphere in the former bottles - a more vivid and intense ambience is created inside these bottles. Also the plot - if there is one - concentrates more on the things hidden beneath us. The creatures underground." - shared Rafael Varona.

But when they can no longer recognize their monstrous creations, they ultimately discover what truly matters, their love for real food...and each other." (chipotle.com)
