I’m glad this got bumped.
I’ve mentioned my fave effects from video-games before, with the main one being being from inFAMOUS: Second Son for me (which is why I HAD to bring it up in the linked topic). As it so happens they are a general mental bar that I strive for. So I’d say I find it very inspiring to see what can be done.
BUT… truly. When it comes to VFX of any medium there is nothing - NOTHING - that can even come CLOSE to Disney’s Fantasia 2000: Firebird Suite. 5 Years of hand done animation, and it is a glory to behold.
It screams at my SOUL, and SOUL screams back. I will make something of this someday. Much like Frodo, I do not know the way. But I’ll do it. That’s what this Junior dreams of anyway.
