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.’
CBS Sunday Morning did a great segment on the nominees for Best Animated Short today. The video for that segment isn’t available yet on their web page yet but it should be by the end of the day. It’s wonderful that CBS took the time to profile these fine examples of animation art on their Oscar show. They gave these animators more time than some of the high profile nominees in the major categories. Also, some of the scenes they showed are not available in on-line trailers.
