View Full Version : cg movies

I was wondering, what sites do you visit in order to refuel your creative juices? Particularly the animated kind? I usually visit the animation section of CGTalk but ever since they removed the rating option I cant help but think that the number of new animations posted is decreasing slowly. Quite possibly because the number of comments on posted animations is not that great anymore, either.

Anyway, I don't know of any other sites myself, but I imagine there are sites that feature cg animations perhaps like Gametrailers does with new trailers for example. If you know of any I sure would like to know about them.

Some days ago I got an invitation to this site. As far as I know its mainly about 3danimations. But its in german, so Im not sure that this is useful for you....

3D Total often has links to animations: http://www.3dtotal.com/

Other than that, if you haven't seen it, I'd recommend tracking down a copy of "Burning Safari", an animated short that (if I remember rightly) was a final film project one year from students at Gobelins, a place that's always worth looking at: http://www.gobelins.fr/

I enjoyed Burning Safari more than I enjoyed most Pixar movies...

To be honest, a great novel (or graphic novel) always motivates me. Imo, descriptive and emotional words breaths the most life into any image. I can look at pretty pictures all day but they don't really strike me as moving and engaging till I understand the reasons behind them.

Another way to look at it is eating some really good food amongst good company. The food is just more enjoyable that way.

The first thing I do every single day is visiting this websites:
1. 3dtotal
2. 3dm3.com
3. cgsociety.org
4. cgchannel.com
5. motionographer.com

Hope that'll help you out :)

Dude you can find a ton of stuff on youtube.

I have favorited about 14 on my channel.

Just scroll through I don't have a crazy amount of stuff...and all of it is worth a watch (IMO).

edit: well, not everyone will care about how to study kanji.

It's a little expensive, and you might find them on ebay but the Stash DVD collections are amazing!

Thanks for the replies and the great links :)

Obviously Youtube is a great source, but I find it's not the site you want to visit to see newly released animations.
