3D Elvis

Being a fan of 3D computer animated movies such as Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and the more recent Beowulf, I was delighted to find this clip on Youtube (thanks to Elvis Information Network):


Apparently the guy who created this animation is a freelance animator named Tim Pope. He writes on YouTube that it was a personal project done with Lightwave animation software, and that it took "2 years of blood, sweat, and tears to complete."

I don't know about you, but I was very impressed with the result and have watched it many times tonight. Granted, the resemblance isn't perfect but still very close. Just imagine what will be possible in the very near future. It'll make Christmas Duets seem like child's play...

Very impressive! The work behind this masterpiece must be enormous. True art -- by an artist -- of an artist. Thanks for sharing!

That is awesome. I loved it. Thanks for posting that up here. I saw your comment on the Have A Clambake blog. I came over to your blog. You've got a really cool Elvis blog too. I'm adding your blog to the blog links on my Dino Lounge blog. I definitely plan to check out/comment on your blog when I have more time. Cheers!

Amazing! Well, yet he said it in 1968: "... the engineers have improved..."
