Oh my good golly gosh. That looks rather sweet!

And as for the studio, that is the best news I've heard all year! Another player enters the fray, and its got great credentials :)

All the best to those up in Portland!

Looks great, but it would be even cooler if Will Vinton still worked there.....

And if it was still called Will Vinton Studios.

What the heck is Laika? Some kind of Russian space dog? Nike Animation Studios might have been cool. I could see why they would want to change the name since Will Vinton isn't their anymore.

Regardless, I think they can do some cool stuff with or without the Vinton label.

The studio rocks, and the moongirl project was a blast. Henry is an amazing director and I'm betting the features coming out of that place will be top notch.

The casio keyboard soundtrack has gotta go and putting "work in progress" on a sneak peak trailer really leaves a lot to be desired in regards to the professionalism of the project.

Other than that, not really my style of movie, but best of luck to everyone up there, I'm interested to see how it turns out.

It has a nice look, but the animation isn't at all flawless. The timing is very off sometimes. I bet it would even look floatier on the big screen.

I just finished reading an interesting little artical about this, a little snippet:

"Knight has said he wants his renamed company to become a major animation force, competing with the likes of Pixar and Dreamworks. Pixar has made a name for itself with a string of animated hits including The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, A Bug's Life and Toy Story."

I agree. I think it has a very student feel to it. I expected better even for a work in progress.

I agree, it is good tv series quality ala jimmy neutron but definately not feature film quality.... then again, some some animated features coming out dont look so great.

By the way this is not a feature , its a short film. On the site it says:

"a short film by Henri selick"
