Jurassic Ploof, Kickflip, Sweatness - Les Gobelins FX Animation Exercises (Part 2)
Following our earlier feature of the Gobelins FX exercises, 30 second animations with an emphasis on animated effects in both 2D and 3D, it seems like more groups have released their pieces online. Among them we have Jurassic Ploof, a fun animated short about a Dinosaur themed waterpark with a bad case of the zombies. The Mike Mignola (Hellboy) inspiration is undeniable, but they pulled it off so damn good! This premise deserves to be expanded into something bigger.
After the break we have Kickflip, which has some Jet Grind Radio vibes with a rather abrupt, painful ending. Last but not least there's Sweatness, a cautionary tale of what might happen if you don't take a moment to dry off that buildup of sweat while you workout. As usual, can't wait to see what these students come up with given a few months of production time!
