Trailer & Clip for #MUTAFUKAZ animated film from Ankama x Studio 4℃


Le premier trailer fou du très attendu Mutafukaz est là !
Avec les voix d'Orelsan et de Gringe

"Angelino is just one of thousands of deadbeats living in Dark Meat City. But an otherwise unremarkable scooter accident caused by a beautiful, mysterious stranger is about to transform his life... into a waking nightmare! He starts seeing monstrous forms prowling around all over the city... Is Angelino losing his mind, or could an alien invasion really be happening this quietly...?" (IMDb)

Tis been a couple of years since the last teaser footage for the #MUTAFUKAZ animated film from Ankama x Studio 4℃, and now tis time to update a few visual treats, including the latest trailer!


Based on the characters created by Guillaume "Run" Renard (released as comicbooks and even Qee toys from Toy2R) - who will co-direct this feature himself, with Tekkonkinkreet animation director Shoujirou Nishimi, with Japan's Studio 4°C co-producing the project. The result looks absolutely FAB, with a splendid does of alternative/non-traditionally-aesthetic/indie animation synonymous with Studio 4°C mashed with the Euro/French graphics and illustrative art aesthetics = resulting in a UNIQUE visual fest, IMHO!

COSMIC CAVIES by Jason Chalker


Caught this over the weekend (on Facebook, where I dwell too often these days), and had wanted to share with readers of TOYSREVIL and #anim8te: A Teaser for “COSMIC CAVIES” by Jason Chalker AKA Manly Art (www.manlyart.com / Facebook) - known for his illustrations and Star Wars-themed bootleg toys, now presenting an animated piece, which left me entertained and appreciating the diversity of his portfolio!

And of course I had too bug Jason for a wee more info!

TOYSREVIL: Is the Cosmic Cavey a fictional character? Or based on anyone/someone? And why a hamster?
JASON CHALKER: ”The main character, Captain Johann, is based on a guinea pig my wife and I had that recently passed away. His name was Johann.

Guinea pigs are great little animals and I love the idea of them being intrepid space adventurers because it's probably the last thing anyone would think a guinea pig would do if given the means and intelligence. :)

The scientific name for guinea pigs is cavey. They are NOT hamsters. They get offended by the comparison. ;)”


(This is the random drawing that started the whole thing - Thanks Jason!)

TOYSREVIL: Oops! Sorry, “Captain Johann”! (R.I.P. Johann…). Can we expect anything more beyond this teaser? Any particular timeline you are looking at?
JASON CHALKER: “I will definitely be doing something with it in the future. It's a pet project (no pun intended) so I can't spend as much time as I'd like on it.

I'm still developing a lot of the aspects of Captain Johann's crew and the universe they live in. I will definitely be putting out bits and pieces as I develop the larger project.”

Jamiroquai’s “(Don't) Give Hate a Chance” Music Video from 2005


"(Don't) Give Hate A Chance" is the third and final single from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's sixth studio album, Dynamite. The single was released on November 7th, 2005. The video (featured above) is Jamiroquai's first-ever computer animated music video and pays homage to the Italian cartoon “La Linea”.

Production by Partizan UK, with post-production by Machine Molle (“Directed by Alex & Martin”).

I remembered when this came out, I was laughing at the “Buffalo Man” depiction of Jay Kay and his Indian Chief headdress! I was on the peak of my obsession with animation in different aspects of media (film, tv, TVC, MVs etc) and this track was a delight, even though I wasn’t much a fan of Jamiroquai’s music until much later… :)

Although thinking back, I wasn’t too sure if the visuals were as “crisp” / sharp - compared to the current versions, seen even on Vimeo…

Overwatch - Animated Shorts Explained @ BlizzCon 2016


After the debut of their Sombra-ccentric “Infiltration” short at the recent BlizzCon 2016, the animation crew explains how they created the animation for all the Animated Shorts for OVERWATCH, live on stage, in this 55+ minutes video recording.

Although tech-heavy (but not too obscure that I did not just sit thru the entire session listening to haha), the folks offer a pretty detailed walk thru both visually and explanation, and great for folks interested in behind-the-scenes of the shorts and characters we have watched thus far.

Folks interested can also check out the various shorts by clicking on the icons below!
