Animated Indy Is Here! (VIDEO)

All 70 seconds of it!

As I had previously blogged about, freelance animator Patrick Schoenmaker was inspired to make a “calling card” test clip of what an animated Indiana Jones series could look like. After years of development, the brief but thrilling clip is here.

Working as a “proof of concept” piece, The Adventures of Indiana Jones (see mock trailer below) is essentially a collage montage of ideas, imaginatively rendered and ingeniously blended. While Schoenmaker has aspirations of turning this into a real series if Lucasfilm were interested, I’d be more inclined to see direct-to-video feature length narratives in this style rather than weekly episodes. I think that approach would keep the property fresh rather than running it into the ground.

But I’ll take either.
