I mentioned in the comments on last week’s flick that I am a sucker for inanimate objects brought to life. Animators sometimes do this exceptionally well. Possibly the most famous CGI short film ever made —and the first to be nominated for an Academy Award— is Luxo Jr. from Pixar. The first flick today is a 30th birthday tribute to Luxo Jr. from Stiller Studios, made using their motion control robots.
In case you have never seen Luxo Jr. (and because it is worth watching again even if you have seen it before) here is the full original posted by Cooper Hewitt Museum, courtesy of Pixar Animation Studios.
Perhaps you will look at inanimate objects in a new light this weekend.
