recognizing Arthur C. Clarke’s third law

The movie I seem to see is hardly there

Margarita shortAn aficionado named Rob Richards maintains a blog devoted to appreciating the backgrounds in animated cartoons and films.

The site is a real labor of love. Rob often painstakingly removes the characters from a frame, then reconstructs what the characters were blocking from view, basing his work on other frames in the shot.

But he does branch out. Several weeks ago, Hampa Studio in Spain sent Rob a background from their short film Margarita (pictured), simply because they were so proud of their background artists’ work.

Another perspective was contributed by Patrik Spacek, a CG artist who is honing his abilities by creating fully rendered 3D scenes based on his favorite 2D movies. Click here to see what Patrik came up with for the interior of Geppetto’s shop in Pinocchio.
