Indie Animation Spotlight

August 27, 2014

Hullabaloo
If you had to choose one film project to help support this year: Hullabaloo is definitely worth a look. A passion project of Disney veteran James Lopez, this talented animator and his colleagues have spent their free time over the past few years developing a beautifully hand drawn steampunk film with its eclectic characters. Although these animators took on this endeavor for their obvious love of animation, their goal is to also send a strong message to the major studios that 2D animation is far from a dying art form.

Hullabaloo‘s Indiegogo campaign launched this week and has many perks for funders that range from T-shirts & digital copies of Hullabaloo to original artwork and animation courses, so please check out the website and help prove that 2D animation is here to stay via donations and link sharing.

Amara Gets A Makeover

August 31, 2013

Amara There has been some interest about the warrior in our old logo, and since she recently underwent new character designs by Acacia Torres, we’d like to take this time to introduce you to Amara: Warrior Priestess of the Nri Kingdom.

There are plans to create a graphic novel and a hand drawn animated feature about her story in the future, but for this year first things first: obtain 501(c)3 status, then release Detecter Pig for your viewing pleasure.

Calling All Artists!

May 13, 2013

One of Legends Animated’s animators needs artists who can match a creepy style of art work he is using for a separate project. The image below is the one he needs to match right away: it will be the 1st page and he needs more comic book type pages based on the story.  If you’re interested and want more specifics please email James at james@legendsanimated.org.

Film Festival Prep

April 30, 2013

Still plugging away at both the artistic and business sides of Detecter Pig so we can make the film festival deadlines: we’ll spare you the nonprofit biz details and instead share some concept artwork by one of Legends Animated’s artists, Hung Tai

Almost At The Finish Line…

Lots of creative work happening at Legends Animated as we’re preparing Detecter Pig  for upcoming film festivals; here is a screen shot of one of the scenes:

Enjoy this music video created by our animator James Neal:

 

It’s always great to watch the creative work of independent animators on the big screen, but to share your animation up there with an audience would be almost surreal. Of course, this possibility wouldn’t be possible without a talented art department: thanks to the awesome work of artists Acacia Torres, Michelle Alvarado, and Holly Knevelbaard, our animator and associate producer James Neal has started animating scenes of Detecter Pig, which means the production is on schedule for the 2013 deadlines of the film festivals and web festivals we plan to submit. I will definitely post festival details as 2013 draws nearer, so stay tuned.
