A Scanner Darkly

Wow. I can’t wait for this movie….the effects look incredible. Is this the first time that an animation technique has been used as an effect over an entire film? The only thing that I can think comes close is Tron…other examples anyone?

Kevin has a close friend in Austin, where the majority of the effects were created. His friend interviewed several times to be one of the animators on the project. It was fascinating stuff. He didn’t get the job, but that turned out to be a good thing. Apparently they had production problems and were calling around months later trying to find people to finish the work of the original artists they hired. Because of that, I’ve been hearing about this movie for about 2 years and every time I see one of those new Charles Schwab commercials I think of this. It’s the same style of animation.
