Check out this great MSN video: 'Rio' Exclusive: Film's First Two Minutes

Being a Brazilian, I could not resist sharing this clip of Blue Sky's Rio, directed by my fellow Brazilian Carlos Saldanha.
I loved the animation in it and the great animators there were able to make the birds dancing Samba perfectly.
I can't wait to see the whole movie.
Again, congratulations to Carlos and to the whole crew on a beautiful job. One of the best CG animation I have ever seen.

I do simple animation too

Animation can be so complex and time consuming, specially in the Disney style, that sometimes I welcome an easy project that allow me to animate simple stuff.
These are scenes from an European short that I animated a while ago. The character designs were so simple, just geometric shapes really, that I was able to finish one or two of these a day.
I really like to do animation like this once in a while.
