The long awaited trailer for the animated film "9" is finally online! I think it looks pretty fun - I hope this one turns out. It's been a long time coming for this flick - starting as a short film and then being transformed into a full length deal. CLICK HERE (http://digitalapprentice.net/Community/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=120&func=view&id=1748&catid=18) to check it out.

Happy Holidays everyone! :D

This is posted already. Also no offense but why are you posting a link to your own forum instead of a direct link to the trailer? I am sure if somebody wants to visit digitalapprentice.net they can do so by clicking your signature link.

looks like some character designs taken from the sony ps3 game "little big planet" and push into a first world war/ post apoclyptic world war story..

Nope, 9's been around for a couple of years already, first as a short film.

to be fair little big planet has been in production for quite some time...wasn't made in a weekend ya know!..so who know's what came first!...quite similar and something that happens often....bug's life - antz, finding nemo - other fish film with will smith etc etc.

from the wiki
ittleBigPlanet (often abbreviated to LBP and developed under the working title The Next Big Thing) is an puzzle platformer and world creation video game for the PlayStation 3 (http://littlebigplanet.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_3), first announced on March 7, 2007 by Phil Harrison (http://littlebigplanet.wikia.com/wiki/Phil_Harrison) at the 2007 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, California. It was developed by Media Molecule (http://littlebigplanet.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Molecule), a British company founded in part by Rag Doll Kung Fu creator Mark Healey, it's published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (http://littlebigplanet.wikia.com/wiki/Sony_Computer_Entertainment) and is now avalible all over the world.

..so has been around for a few years also...

i'd also add the idea of animated stitched/cloth characters is probably based on "the clangers" which was first broadcast nov 16th 1969...so nothing 'new' as such really!
at least the clangers didn't suffer from stretched uv's round the back of the head!

The short 9 was RELEASED in 2005 after almost 5 years of development. Im pretty sure its been around since before LBP.

Then again, there have been movies with little rag doll things and toys for ages.

I think its looking really nice. The dark style and destruction.. everything is dirty - atlast a dirty animated feature. Looks good!

lol...some people can just never admit when they are beat. Shane Acker's 9 has been around for ages and ages, I read about it and how Burton picked it up to develop about a year ago in 3D World. You are wrong, so please, no more plush toy images. Know what you are talking about before you decide to post.

How the bloody hell is this film at this stage already! :D I was watching the short again the other day actually; always found it weird, never enjoyed it much. Odd choice of short to take into feature film territory; there are loads of other shorts that I think would be better suited. Mind you, haven't even watched the trailer yet, so better do that now. :)

And some people don't know that not everything is some petty contest. Who cares which came first? LBP is a great game, and by the looks of things, 9 is shaping up to be a great film, so spare us the snide remarks.

Surely that should have been aimed at cresshead, not me? Not that I care, I am just pointing out the obvious. Of course it doesn't matter, I could have told you that. I'm not the one that went googling images for clangers. ;)

Saw the trailer, was far more impressed with it than the actual short. Will be going to see this for sure.

it's not a contest, i was observing that most people will think/comment/belive it looks the same a little big planet...and by "most people" that's means "the public" not cg artists.

little big planet is already in the public mind with it's huge release on ps3...simple as that...no petty or snide remarks, just observations on the "look"

also noting/observing that the clangers didn't suffer from uv texture stretching unlike some of the renders from this production....hope they fix them before release.

happy holidays all!:D

I was surprised to hear music by The Knife during the first part of the trailer...:)

Glad to see this finally coming out! Congrats to everyone involved but especially to Shane Acker for pulling off what so many of us dream about.

Too true! What's next, a clean video game? :P

(Yes, I know. Mirror's Edge. It was a joke).

Ya, I saw 9 at Siggraph in 2005 and it was done by Acker in his basement after work for years. So any correlation with designs "taken" from Little Big Planet is beyond absurd. More like vice versa if anything.

My only beef with it is the texture of the knitting effect on the main character. It seemed quite simplistic and with out real volume and sliding effect. But overall I think it touched all the right buttons for me. Cant wait.

I saw "9" the short version at SIGGRAPH 2005 in L.A aswell and loved it, it had so much character - cant wait for the full thing.

If anything Little big planet stole from this - but they are so different it would be hard to tell.

Anyone know if the short is online anywhere to watch

Wow this looks like it's going to be amazing. This looks like it could be just the kind of movie to break the mold of "animated films only for kids and family". It's in the kind of style I like and it looks beautiful too. I'm really rooting for this one. Can't wait. Hopefully it won't tank as badly as Delgo did because it looks so promising.
