When people began seeing THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN they weren’t really impressed. Motion capture has improved, but there are still complaints that the characters had “dead eyes” that are common in motion capture. It is very difficult to reproduce the look of a real human eye. We all know it when we see it, but can’t describe it. Anyway TINTIN appears to be getting a surge here at the end. I assumed RANGO was a shoe in for Best Animated Feature. With TINTIN getting a Golden Globe and winning last night at the Producers guild, is jumping to the front of the line. Also with Spielberg pretty much out for WAR HORSE this is a great chance to honor him and still be his “friend”. (reference to previous post).
