1930s Style Animation + Jazz Music = Cuphead Video Game

cuphead-videogame01

I rarely post anything video game related but this one, being developed by Studio MDHR, may interest some of you animators out there! Cuphead is an action game featuring fantastic 1930s style cel animations (hand drawn and hand inked), with watercolour backgrounds, and original jazz music. It looks so fun to play!

Players control two characters, Cuphead and Mugman, who after losing a dice roll with the devil, are forced to do his bidding. The game is slated for release as an XBOX and PC title sometime in 2016. Watch the preview video of the game below!

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
