Trashonauts – Animated Delight
Trashonauts is made by a Filmmaker Jack Corpening. This fantastic short is dedicated to human space flight, animal rescue, and cleaning up pollution, with a nifty musical homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is the most adorably animated little magnet ever.
Kickstarter funded 3D animated short film thesis about a grumpy space garbage man who happens upon a spunky magnetic alien. Produced in Ringling College of Art + Design’s Computer Animation Major using Maya, ZBrush, RenderMan, Nuke, Photoshop, Substance Painter, Premiere Pro, and 3D-Coat. 40 backers pledged $2,351 to help bring this project to life. An epic score was made by Corey Wallace, which combines Strauss’s Blue Danube with trash-based percussion and spacey synth for a unique effect, a sort of cartoony homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
