One (CG) Froggy Evening

Graphic design students from Brazil attempt to recreate Chuck Jones’ One Froggy Evening in CG as their finals project. You can watch the two-minutes they created here.

And for comparison, this is the Jones original:

UPDATE: Virgilio Vasconcelos, one of the students who made the film, offers some background about the reason for the project. He wrote in the comments below:

“As a regular Brew reader, I never thought our project would be shown here.

Before anyone yells that we had killed the masterpiece, I would say that everything was done only for learning purposes. We never wanted to say that CG is better or even that we could make something comparable to the original.

We never had formal education in animation (neither do we have where to study animation where we live), so our goal was to study a classic from a great master frame by frame to see if we could learn something. I believe it was quite successful on its goal: we have learned a lot.

The original, 2D one, is an all-time classic. Just incomparable. Chuck Jones is my hero, and I thank him and all fellas at Golden Age who motivated us to learn about animation.”
