(Link to Vimeo video) Sergio Pablos Animation Studios created a teaser for “Klaus,” their latest animated feature film, which is now in financing stage.
The teaser introduces a hapless mailman assigned to a mountain village where no one wants a postal service.
The look of the hand-drawn animation is quite different from the current crop of Hollywood CG animation.
Because it begins with 2D drawing, it's unlike Disney's Paperman and Feast, which were 3D CG models rendered to look like they were hand-drawn.
Beyond the animation technique, the teaser showcases some gorgeous shot design and color schemes.
Both in terms of color moods and visual pacing, the trailer has wonderful variety...
The use of lighting to heighten mystery is remarkable and inspired.
