The Book of Life

Now here's an animated movie that's appropriate for this upcoming Halloween. I watched The Book of Life last year and it was stunning! Aside from the concept, because this is a graphics and animations class, what immediately caught my attention was the decision to make all the characters look like wooden marionettes. It gave a whole other layer of fantasy and really the interesting choice in texture, oddly enough, gave them more life.

The movie is all about big, bold colors and intense lighting. There is nary a simple scene, in fact, what is meant to be the underworld is even brighter and more colorful than the land of the living.
