Here's a project clearly born from a love of early 2d animated classics. Well worth repeated viewings to check out all the little accents and details, beatiful piece of work with some wonderful animation in a style not revived in a long time!
From the Author:
"We wanted to make a cartoon inspired by 1930s rubber-hose animation in the fashion of Max Fleicher’s Betty Boop, as well as having the polish and excitement of 1940s cartoons, à la Bob Clampett and Tex Avery."

Stunning promo piece from Capacity.tv, mixing an illustrative Japanese style with some great transitions, sharp animation, graphics, vfx and sound design.
There are some interesting production breakdown images over on Motionographer too, with more to come on Capacity's own site. Well worth a look .

Deviating from animation for a moment - I realy liked the way the production blueprints and pre-production work are included in this reel, an well constructed presentation of his environment modelling skills in effectively one shot.
