Innovation Wins: 'Klaus' is Now in Production
Rejoice, fellow people who appreciate motion pictures that don't try so damn hard to look just like real life!
Sergio Pablos' exciting-looking traditional animation/CG hybrid film Klaus is in production! This has been confirmed via their facebook page.
Last I heard, Pablos was collaborating with the newly set-up Cinesite Animation to make the picture a reality. To me, this project is basically taking Paperman's techniques and actually doing something feature-length with them. I'm not sure if Walt Disney Animation Studios is planning on making their proverbial "Paperman movie," but until the day they really deviate from their current house style or whatever (that doesn't include shorts), we've got films like this to look forward to.
Now it may be happening, but the release is a whole different story. Of course, we all want this to be a wide release, but nothing's guaranteed, so I'm not going to hold my breathe. As long as it reaches big screens in some way, that would be nice... But it deserves a no-holds-barred wide release.
What say you?
