DAVE School Runners animated short online!


A while back, I mentioned that the DAVE (Digital Animation and Visual Effects) School in Orlando would be doing a RUNNERS animated short as a final class project. It is now DONE and online!!

Last week they flew me down to check out the final film and attend the class graduation. It was a real treat to see the animation… in 3-D!…at the local cineplex theater!! And it was great to meet many of the graduating students afterwards.

As with the last short (back in 2006), I gave them free reign to adapt the comic and characters as they saw fit. I didn’t give any input along the way, so certain things are a little off, like some character proportions and ship dimensions. But those are minor things that don’t detract from the overall awesomeness of seeing RUNNERS animated (again)!

Check it out here!

    Holy crap was this *THE* John Dimaggio voicing this? This was awesome. I am so glad to see this continuing. Congrats on seeing this done!

      Yes it was! The DAVE School had thrown his name out there when we were first discussing options, as they had worked with him before (as well as Mark Hamill, Billy West, and several others). I had no idea that they had actually gotten him though, so that was an awesome surprise!
