Flash animation in Ping Pong

ピンポンではフラッシュアニメーションを使っています。フラッシュ作業したところの様子をこちらのムービーで少し見られます。スローモーションと長めのトラックバックとトラックアップのカットは手書きだと動画が大変なので、デジタルで作業しました。

Some people asked us about our special animation technique in the Ping Pong TV series.
In this short video you can see the “insides” of two scenes we worked on for the show.
Animators developed a new digital technique, in order to get slow movements, turnings and big zooms, that would have been very difficult in hand drawn animation.

What Happened to Original Movies Aimed at Adults?

Richard Brody on the debate over the decline of a genre: http://nyr.kr/1xALTza

“In the eighties, the industry found that it had left its largest market, that of young people wanting to get out of the house, untapped or shunted to ludicrous beach-blanket anachronisms. After that market is served, what’s left is the equivalent of the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera—or, for that matter, Bargemusic, The Stone, or IRCAM.”

ART HISTORY MEME: (1/6) themes or series or subjects: Orpheus and Eurydice

Desperately he tried to rush after her and follow her down, but he was not allowed. The gods would not consent to his entering the world of the dead a second time, while he was still alive. He was forced to return to the earth alone, in utter desolation. Then he forsook the company of men. He wandered through the wild solitudes of Thrace, comfortless except for his lyre, playing, always playing, and the rocks and the rivers and the trees heard him gladly, his only companions. But at last a band of Maenads came upon him….They slew the gentle musician, tearing him limb from limb, borne along past the river’s mouth on to the Lesbian shore; nor had it suffered any change from the sea when the Muses found it and buried it in the sanctuary of the island. His limbs they gathered and placed in a tomb at the foot of Mount Olympus, and there to this day the nightingales sing more sweetly than anywhere else. “
