Happy New Year!

This is just a small post to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and also to share a wonderful Grim Fandango related project with you.

The Grim Fandando Stop-Mo Project plans to use stop-motion animation to recreate the famous opening sequence that introduced us to Manny Calavera, and his less-than-desirable client, Celso. (Stop-motion is the style of animation you've seen in Chicken RunWallace and Gromit, The Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) The level of detail and attention being put into the project by its creator, Pixyfrog, and his contributors, is nothing short of stunning! I can't wait to see the finished video.

While you're at it, why not take a peek at Chay Hawe's incredibly detailed and unique take on Manny Calavera on his portfolio website Chayground.

  1. Thanks for your very kind words Johnny, and for the spotlight. As one of your team members rightly said (Jon N/A), this is going to be the year of alternative GF projects!

    All the best to your project.. mine will be a bit slow I am afraid... one picture at a time...
