Meet the Spy - TF2 - Valve Software
The first year animators (Alice) showed me this clip and it was interesting to note that Jean-Denis Haas on the Spungella blog was thinking the same way. It's a clip made with games character assets for a game called Team Fortress 2. The animation students know of the game. And I was interested in the marketing through creating a high production quality and well animated short film as a way to promote it more widely (I love the music but not the violence). I like it when students present animation that interests them as it helps develop interesting lesson plans. Are there any more of these types of promotions with nice animation that people have seen? Tell us about them in the comments.
