This isn’t 2D animation news. It is news about an animation special effects artist at Dreamworks. It made me sick. I hope Young Song is blacklisted and never works again.Â From The Daily Mail:
According to the Pasadena Humane Society, security camera video allegedly showed Song shooting the muzzled dog with a pellet gun before later returning and killing the animal with a hammer.
It is claimed he then carried away the dog, who is yet to be found and is presumed dead.
‘When our officers first viewed the videotape, one of our officers had tears in his eyes. Heâ€™d never seen anything like this before,’ Steve McNall, head of the Pasadena Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, told the Los Angeles Times.
‘In my 31 years at this animal shelter Iâ€™ve never seen anything like this.’
Here’s a true gem from Max Fleischer and the early days of animation. Oldmobiles may be no more but Fleischer’s animation will live forever. When people complain about product placements in today’s films, remind them that it was even worse in the 1930s.
