One of my favorite film makers has to be Adam Phillips. His short films are rich in story and use flash animation in a very cool way. My favorite work of his is called "Brackenwood" which centers around a main character named "Bitey" and his journeys through everyday life in the world of "Brackenwood".
I would have to say the most stunning part of his short films are the FX, and if i'm not mistaken during his time at Disney that was the department he worked in. The link is to the first film in the "Brackenwood" series and in comparison to the later instalments is a little unpolished. But in its own right the film is still amazing and I watch it often when looking for inspiration.
I havent posted anything new in a while, and this post will be a exception. Because I think for anyone out there that is into indy animated films these are definatly some of the best out there. So watch, and I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
