Forgotten Animated Films and Early CG...

It is funny to mee that we live in a golden age of animation but we seem to be taking less and less risks. Anyway here are the trailer from some Forgotten traditioanlly Animated films.
What I found interesthing is how cg is beginning to enter slowly into animation.

Rock & Rule

(First animated film to use computer graphics)

Star Chaser: (One of the first uses of 3D animation with 2d)

Fire & Ice (Adeed beacuse of its heavy use of Rotocosping)

StarChaser was also presented in 3D in theaters, which was a big deal at the time..it would be nice to see a restored blu-ray in 3D or something. I think there is some kind of bootleg anaglyph out there. Too bad it was too blatant a Star Wars ripoff.

(Cool Story Bro: I did the voice of the main character's little brother, somewhere I might still have character model sheets from the film)

I have been a massive fan of Rock & Rule (and Nelvana) for a long time..I think there is still more room for weird than ever, but it's hard to get those kind of production values (raw meat on the animation stand!). I still love the soundtrack.

I think there was a recent restoration of Fire & Ice too, would have to look again. Not sure the whole formula worked as a movie, but it was really interesting to see.

I don't know if you want to count it, but Geri's Game, a wonderful short from 1997. I saw this playing on dozens of TV's at a best buy when I was 11, and it made me fall in love with animation.

It is an awesome short, but it is after all a Pixar short.

How about the Adventures of Mark Twain-- the clay animated film by Will Vinton (California Raisins)

Pretty rare for a full length clay animated film though I remember it getting a fair bit of press.
