Saturday Matinee – Island Soccer, ZZ Embarasses A Keeper, Pencil Test, Technological Threat & Rocket PenSaturday, 26 March 2011
Great video worth watching. Pure awesome. [via]
In 1986, this was state of the art computer animation. Here’s Pixar’s “pencil test” of the most recognizable early computer animation of all time.
In 1988, Brian Jennings’ and Bill Kroyer’s “Technological Threat” combined digital animation with Tex Avery’s classic style. It was nominated for best animation short (but was beat out by Pixar’s “Tin Toy”).
So now, let’s fast forward to 2011. Computer animation is at its peak with this example of awesome. I love it.

Right. Nothing like putting the threaded axle of a bicycle wheel on your noggin, giving it a spin, and enjoying some self-trepanation while watching a soccer match. Next thing you know, your spinning image is posted here.
