Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

SM7515

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes!

“We thought this was really cool, a great idea. It was originally supposed to be a DC Nation short,” said Timm during the Superman 75th Anniversary panel at NYCC. “We sat down and made this big laundry list — History of Superman. It quickly snowballed and became way bigger than a DC Nation short. The budget ballooned, I don’t mind saying. It’s going to be on multiple platforms, but the best way to watch it will be on the Blu-ray release.”

The short will be widely available on the “Man of Steel” Blu-ray release on November 12.

After watching the short, be sure to check out DC Comics’ official list of annotations HERE.

Super Clever Optical Illusion Video Featuring Ray-Ban Sunglasses

Screen Shot 2013-10-14 at 12.07.39 PM

This clever video features anamorphic illusions in which apparently 3D objects turn out to be 2D anamorphic projections. As the video progresses, the illusions escalate in complexity—the last illusion, involving a pair of sunglasses, is very clever indeed. The video was produced by Ray-Ban.

DC Comics has found a unique way to promote its upcoming “Batman: Black and White” #2. The publisher has posted a video that turns Michael Uslan and Dave Bullock’s short story “Silent Knight… Unholy Knight!” into a silent film trailer complete with old-fashioned orchestral music, tears in the film and silent film captions.

The 40-second trailer heavily features Bullock’s artwork with limited animation, which lends itself incredibly well to the video presentation.

Look for “Silent Knight… Unholy Knight!” in issue #2 of Batman: Black and White, available digitally and in print on October 2nd, 2013.

BatDad

Screen+shot+2013-09-18+at+2.54.11+PM

Blake Wilson is a regular guy. He’s married, has four kids, drives a minivan, and does normal, boring, suburban dad stuff. What makes Blake Wilson special, though, is that he does all of that normal, boring, suburban dad stuff while wearing a Batman mask and talking like Christian Bale from The Dark Knight.

Also, he’s kind enough to post that stuff to Vine so that the rest of the world can revel in the hilarity although I get the impression Blake’s wife doesn’t find his antics as funny as we do.

Here Wilson discusses the origin of BatDad:

“About three weeks ago my wife and I were shopping for a child’s birthday party we were going to that weekend with our family. While browsing the toy aisle I saw that Batman mask and put it on just playing around. I ended up buying it and when we got in the minivan I put it on and told my wife I’m BatDad lol. I made that first vine about driving a minivan with the mask on and we just cracked up. It was so fun I just kept making them. I started getting comments from a lot of parents telling me how funny they are and how they can relate.”

You can follow BatDad on twitter HERE. Thanks Josh Garrell for the tip!

It’s almost been 30 years since A-ha’s music video for Take on Me premiered. The clip, which used a rotoscoping method to trace over individual frames, swept the 1986 MTV Music Awards and immediately became a fan favorite.

Now Volkswagen has debuted a new ad directed by David Shane that uses the same rotoscoping technique which pays homage to the original.
