Posting Les Dangereux reminded me of another little gem from a few months ago:
Lucas Martell worked on Pigeon Impossible for nearly 5 years and its an absolute blast. His efforts have won him a ton of awards and acclaim. I hope to see more of Walter Beckett in the future.
If you want to learn more about the making of Pigeon Impossible, go visit his site. There are tons of podcasts and blogs that describe the process and frustration of making a 6 minute short film using computer 3D animation.
