Monsters vs. Aliens
I got the chance to check out Monsters vs. Aliens last night at an advance screening in Hollywood thanks to some friends at work. It had some fun characters, lots of action and tsome great stereoscopic 3D effects. Some of the gags made me groan, but overall, the story moved at a good pace. I think kids are going to love this one.
There was a Q&A with the director and animation director after the show, and I got to ask about the challenges associated with animating for a film shown in 3D. The answer? - 3D made it harder to cheat the action for the camera, and that characters' eyelines had to be spot on. They went on to talk about the decisions they made as far as the story and scope of the film was concerned and what other challenges they faced during production.
So if you are in the mood for an action/scifi monster movie in 3D,the film comes out friday.
