Nosy Bear, a sketch book film by Fran Krause

a post on Motion Comic Magic

Cartoon Brew today posted a really neat short animated film by Fran Krause (Moonraker, Utica Cartoon). I wanted to share it here because it ties into my interest at the possibilities of using techniques to re-purpose art in other forms for animation. In this case the art has not been published in some form, but since it was drawn entirely in a sketchbook first that made it fit for me. I am excited since I also thought of doing the same thing years ago after visiting Muir Woods here in the Bay Area. The film is really simple an nicely done. Maybe this would be a great weekend art project or even for a larger event similar to 24 Hour Comic Book Day. I love how technology makes it possible to do something that is very analog to start with. Of course the bear is a favorite animal of mine too so that makes it all the better.

Just so cool.

Here is the short and a making of video too…
