Promoting Good Animation:Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

The animation that I pick that shows or exemplifies good animation is Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events intro. Unfortunately, you will have to click the link to see the video http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/lemony-snickets-a-series-of-unfortunate-events/.What captures my attention with … Unfortunate Events intro is the style of animation and the layout.

The style :

The style reminds me of Lotte Reiniger. Lotte Reiniger was a German film maker and known for her silhouette animation.

The Layout:

The frames seamlessly flows, you can tell it was really thought out. How one frames plays off the last.

All in all, even thought this animation has a subdue color palette and should be boring its the style and the well thought out layout that make it interesting.
