Yoriyos "The Pied Piper" Dir. Ron Winter w/ Jon Watts, Illustrated by Katy Horan
Nice, cut outs puts me in mind ov Miyazaki's 'Nausicaa of the valley of the wind' - the ohmu's, sorta!
Beautiful work. Technically skilled enough to never seem technical.

Winter's part of the nyc scene. Site and respective work found here:
lovely. Nice that it takes its lessons from the past but doesn't go for old-timey, is contemporary but has a classic feel. Liked the textures and patterns throughout. Kinda wished there wasn't a fade-to-color moment at the end, but it still looks good. Well done, Ron
yay they chose the tree sperm as the thumbnail! the tree sperm are my favorite! i like the color palette thats introduced, the gimmick has been done a lot but i think it works in this context. my gripe is more with the quality of the fade effect itself, its pretty cheesy compared to the 3d and live action.
the book/paper thing has been done a bit too but it really seems to suit the material in this case, as opposed to just an aesthetic the art director wanted to push..
