Animated Inspiration: The Saga of Rex

Michel Gagné, who's work never ceases to impress me, has released a 30 second animation to promote his previously published graphic novel "The Saga of Rex" published by Image Comics. According to animation historian Jerry Beck, Gagné created this film "single-handedly in 3 weeks" when learning how to use Toon Boom software.

Thanks to Jerry Beck over on Cartoon Brew for posting this film from Gagné.

Next, you can view a beautifully remastered in HD version of my favorite Gagné film: "Prelude to Eden". According to Gagné, he created 'Eden' during the development of the Animo software package which would go on to become the 2d software of choice at DreamWorks and Warner Bros. Feature Animation.1
