The first two clips below are both from animated films by director, Richard Linklater. The first is from Waking Life, the second is from A Scanner Darkly (feat. Keanu Reeves). I've always appreciated the use of animation to tell a story and the ability to bring out certain artistic elements in a film. These two films in particular really struck me with their ability to create such a unique asthetic and are what inspired me to try my hand at animation. The last video takes a look at the rotoscoping technique via a specially designed program called Rotoshop; currently not available outside the company.
