StarVeil Test Animation by Dave Rapoza

"This is a little bit of a much larger StarVeil trailer I was going to finish for the launch of the full book. It was more of a test to see if I could even do any animation in the first place. I was never entirely convinced that I'd ever use any of this animation for anything after I'd completed a good chunk of it due to rewrites in the book and progression in animation. It was an awesome learning experience! But yeah, after a couple years of sitting on this I decided to just release what I had seeing as I wouldn't be using it for anything.

It's entirely hand drawn in photoshop frame by frame then exported as video files."

"Alive" Animated Short for #Overwatch from Blizzard


"Tracer" attempts to thwart an assassination attempt by "Widomaker", in this latest promo for "OVERWATCH", the result of which is a story-driven piece, and frankly pretty much a good watch, IMHO. After the earlier Cinematic Trailer for the game's launch (circa 2014), I'd still stick to the adage I'll watch the heck out of a animated movie version!
PRESS: "Overwatch launches May 24, 2016 on PS4. Pre-order now to unlock early access to the Overwatch Open Beta for you and a friend starting May 3."

Introducing "Infini-T Force"!



"Tekkaman, the Space Knight" … "Casshan" (from "Casshern") … "Ken, the Eagle" (from "Gatchaman") … and Hurricane Polymar … classic characters from Tatsunoko Productions, together in a single unit - Presenting "Infini-T Force"!

Infini-T-Force-1
Infini-T-Force-2
Infini-T-Force-3
Infini-T-Force-4
Infini-T-Force-5

First seen as a manga "in the December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's magazine on October 31", with "Shogakukan released the first compiled book volume on April 5." (reported animenewsnetwork.com / see video below).

This anime adaptation will apparently have a different storyline than the manga's, and will utilize "3DCG" by Digital Frontier, who is "collaborating on the project as part of the celebration of Tatsunoko Production's 55th anniversary in 2017." (reported animenewsnetwork.com).

"Reboots" are the rage, and I am all for reboots of classic anime heroes, myself!

This first P.V. showcases the Gatchaman character "in action"! Here's hoping we'll get to see the other three characters' own spotlights too :)
