“Super” titles

Here’s the fun, intentionally primitive, animated title sequence from Super, the new Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page superhero spoof. PUNY (Yo Gabba Gabba) in Minneapolis did the animation.

  • I’m not too familiar with the show itself but I am a fan of that dance sequence.

    Ha ha wow, that’s great. PUNY really did an amazing job. There’s a real energy in this that’s lacking in a lot of polished animation.

    I can’t wait for “Super: The Animated Series.”

    I love it when an animation like that can get me all pumped up for a movie. This s the kind of stuff that makes me want to go out and do animation.

    Dang, I didn’t intend to see this movie and now I may have to! The linework and figures may be “intentionally primitive”, but the staging, timing and body language is spot on.

  • Terrific! Really great layout and camera work, too.

  • Was My Face Red

    So much fun, and it flowed with the music in a way you seldom see. It was primitive and incredibly sophisticated at the same time.

  • so awesome

    That was like a jolt of amazing morning java. A nice example of synergy. The animation really pumps up the intensity of Tsar’s “Calling All Destroyers” without increasing the decibels.

  • Awesome work Puny! There’s a lot of great dynamic animation going on. I love the choreography. Looked great on the big screen too!

  • Luke Shea

    I love it! Snappy stuff! I was already planning to catch this one on DVD, but I might have to sneak out to a theater just to get smacked in the face with that animation, big-screen size.

  • Really nice work.

  • This put a massive smile on my face, great stuff.
    Primitive my ass Jerry, it looks pretty damn involved to me!

  • Cath

    Love!!! Reminds me of the animation style in “Mind Game” by Masaaki Yuasa.

  • that animation was totally excellent.
