Traditional animation systems of interchangeable characteristics, predictable story telling and limited movements are being overturned by a new generation of character designers who are redefining the craft. Pictoplasma’s second volume of the Characters in Motion series documents the latest developments of this revolution in a DVD and book set, which showcases over 50 forward-looking, stylistically outstanding studios, animators and designers in three hours of programming. The “Characters in Motion 2” DVD features surprising, cutting edge character-driven animation by established studios and designers as well as fresh, upcoming talent. Artists include: YVES GELEYN (FR), FLUORESCENT HILL (CA), SHERBET (UK), PLUSHOOD (ISR), 1ST AVE MACHINE (USA), BEN HIBON (UK), EL MIKU (SP), TADO (UK), PANDAPANTHER (USA), IAMSTATIC (CA) and many, many more. The 64 page, full colour book gives in-depth information on the creators, presenting insight into their process of creation, from the first sketch and visual reference to the finished character in its unique visual system.
