Halloween - an animation short teaser came up on a site advertised "Night of the Werehog". It promised a future release of an entire mini-film. From the outset the animation is fluid, cute, yet so creative (Sega's animation team is onto something even for a small piece). Best part? There is little to no dialog in the teaser.. almost gives it a silent film treatment.
Fast forward to now.. over at the same said site http://www.sega.com/sonicunleashed/notw/us/
There is now the full animation short, and its actually very well done.
- the character designs are totally from the new game, and refined
(so much detail, that the Werehog quills shine, and Chip's shivers just make him more adorable)
- the story is simple, Sonic & Chip happen to pass by the house (not knowing its haunted). And those that reside are a trio of ghosts, waiting for more victims to take "kodak" moments.
- the direction is very creative, and it captures a bit of innocence & fun (hey this is Sonic, but in a cg film; they are onto something brilliant here!) =D
- For anyone that enjoys animation, plus a good amount of fun; go check it out! =D
