11 second club...2d the new black?

I've always voted on the competitions over there and never entered. normally they tend to be dominated by 3d pixar wannabies(which is fine).

anyone ever enter?

I've noticed lately that I've started voting differently.. I used to give high votes to the glossy 3d jobbies that had rendered pretty scenes etc.

Of late I've started to focus on different things and also noticed that there is definitely more 2d stuff making its way into to votes.. There has always been a lot of traditional pencil 2d guys n gals but I've started to notice more vector based.

Now I've been defaulting to "so-so" and adjusting for the following;
* interpretation of the clip.. last months was an action/kung foo type clip(normally dialog)... after 100 characters doing kung foo you notice when someone has done something different.. like a chef chopping vegetables etc.
* style.. if it looks different I watch it.. I know its supposed to be based on the animation but I don't think you can separate the two.
* tempo/timing.. really started to notice slow or badly paced things..
* interesting use of cameras.

I have started to really favour good 2d there. versus most of the 3d they seem to be more dynamic, interesting and better timing.. a generalisation I know but its my perspective...
Maybe I'm learning something lol.

Oh and I really liked this one...

I agree with your observations Sven.

Seems 2D is getting more and more attentions these days, more 2D productions as well in the States, which is very cool!

Yep it is cool..

managed to get a link to the movie above, not mine honest.. if it was I'd definiately tell you.
I like the 2nd character how they move a little closer on the anticipation and then react...
