Naruto Title Song

video
This is one of the opening to The Naruto Shippuden series. so far its also my favorite.

on the first half, ther are some pretty slick editing.
the part where the colors come in waves and change between shots .

the second half of this opening is pure gold.
the skills of the animators are quite apparent the way they animate two intricate characters as well as the camera movement, which is is synched with the movement of the background.
there s a lot of dynamic movement, but at no point is the visual idea lost.

Heroe's Comeback



I've been to some of my friends blogs and apparently.. they do a lot of writing... so maybe there is a rule that blogs need to have some amount of text. so this post has slightly more text than the all the other ones
who knows i might just break the internet, if i don t put text in my blog.. and i don't want to be responsible for that.. so here goes.

I love to watch the opening theme s of anime. They are like animated music videos, and many of them have great animation as well as motion graphics in them, Fantastic editing, And sometimes great music. ... theres a lot to learn from watching just the opening of an anime series.

they seem to spend a lot of time setting up the animation and effect for some sequences.
The above opening is an excellent example. its one of the opening to Naruto.

At some point i really want to animate a mock opening sequence.
