While hybrid animation has been around for decades (creating the giant, swirling clock gears in 1986′s The Great Mouse Detective and the sweeping ballroom shot in 1991′s Beauty and the Beast) this is the first major use of it to actually emphasize the retro charm of pen and paper. -Anthony Breznican, EW
An animation piece that highlights “the retro charm of pen and paper”? Sounds like my kinda short! I’d definitely love to see that done with a full-length film someday, too.
