Wow, that IS friggin' awesome! My favourite is probably the second trailer.

Cel shaded 3D, not bad and it's got that Korean animated movie, Wonderful Days, feel to it. And looking at the time, looks like I missed out today :(

Bugger. Gotta remember to watch it next week.

Quite.

I remember catching the first episode and was instantly drawn into it.
'Cell Shading' looks cool. My brother thought it was 2D animation.
And you gotta love a kid's show that's based on an artist's work.[can't be arsed finding out who]

Nice colours, but I think the characters movements are too rotoscoped. You can especially notice it in the girl's movements playing basketball, they're not exaggerated enough.

There seems to be a lot of clashing styles- 3D and 2D animation, rotoscoping and hand drawn art, which makes it a bit jarring to watch. But hey, it's kid's show, they'll lap it up.

>sigh< (runs off to watch Looney Toons.)

I was going to type what Chris did.

I just saw recently the film renesance. They should have just shot it as a movie. The set pieces and the futuristoc paris was beatiful, than these uber emotionless characeters started to do things. I honestly can't stand mo-cap and rotoscoping. If you want realism they invented a camera, if you want to suspend reality and tell me a story through animation, abuse the option and fuckin animate the thing. They had a 20 million euro to play with they could have have hired animators over technicians.

Monster House on the other hand. It was directed and told so well you didn't see the animation, except for when for the second vieweing I had a look at the animation, and left my opinion of mo cap where it was.

Going back to this thing, it needs life.

I know there's a need for realistically proportioned cartoons, but then take a Disney musical like beaty and the beast, and change the story and take out the musical.

Titan AE don't count, as I could rant on for pages about my opinions of Don Bluth :P, but if I ever met him I would have my nose up his arse crack:)

I missed the last bloody episode, though fortunately it's repeated enough on the ABC that I'll catch it again.

Also, is Iron Man made by the same group?
