One of my many other jobs has me covering the animation and motion graphics industry. Today during my search through the Interwebs I found this really cool short film by Isaak Fernandez Rodriguez. Batman: Chapter 1 – Help Me is a very stylized 3D animation that captures the tone of Batman, while at the same time mugging the intensity of Batman’s actions. Not much else is known on this piece at the moment, but it looks to be a school project. Follow the link for the complete short! via Pepeland (link)
