I came across Chinese animator Lei Lei about a year ago and I was instantly drawn to his old-school computer game inspired animations and use of jazzy intricate colorful patterns. His mix of hand-drawn illustrations and computer graphics were a refreshing change from the highly polished HD quality animations some people are geared towards. And they justified multiple viewings immediately.
A visually stunning short 3D-animated film directed by Antoine Perez, Celine Desrumaux, Francois Pons and Gary Levesque. Yankee Gal took a year to complete and was produced at the always formidable French computer graphics school, Supinfocom.
