the Illusionist (trailer)

I know, for just a second you thought this was my cartoon, didn't you? Yeh, my stuff is pretty top of the line animation quality-wise, oh I know, but this...this looks to be a masterpiece! I cannot wait to check it out.

It's by sylvain chomet the maker of Triplets of Bellville (one of my all time favorite cartoons). I love the way this film mixes realistic/cartoonish backgrounds and characters. Just enough exagerration to make it slightly surreal, yet real enough to draw you in. The colors are incredible.

This film looks well made on so many levels. Really this is something I aspire to my own way. Unbelievably cool animation. Quite the influence on my ghettomation.
