Video R'ha is a short movie written, directed and animated by German student Kaleb Lechowski, which opened for him the door to Hollywood
Surprisingly, there is not any information on this bright event in Runet, but I'm going to fix it. It is no joke, but a first year student of the Berlin’s Mediadesign Hochschule, due to its short animated movie called R`ha got a contract in Hollywood!
Once it seemed that the movie stunts will be done without stuntmen. However, it's still wrong. The computer animation always uses the motion capture technology to capture the stuntman motion.
Even the the most advanced blockbusters to make the animation that exceeds the stuntman capabilities when shooting motion capture use the steel ropes, trampolines and other tricks. Is the animation possibility limited to that?
This article will show some techniques to create effects using CSS3 on the example of the menus. The beauty of my idea is that it would simply compose elements, such as icons of the main title and secondary title, which will be animated by the cursor moving using only CSS transitions and CSS animation. We will consider a few different effects for the elements.
Icons that are being used in the demo are the typeface of Web symbols. The typeface is created by Just Be Nice studio.
HTML menu structure will be as an unordered list where each element is a link, which includes the span with an icon and div with the main and secondary title:
<h3 class="ca-sub">Web development articles</h3>
As we use the font for the icons, we will write the corresponding letter for the icon.
Many IT people watch an anime. Majority people have seen it at least once. How is it created?
It begins with an idea. Sometimes, a brainstorm is done in order to choose just one, but better idea. Occasionally, the management makes a decision. Anyway, this is the first and most tedious step. After the idea has been selected, a team is put together, which will deal with its implementation, as well sponsors are needed. Anime is actually a pretty expensive thing, because the showing cost of 52 episodes late at night is close to 50 million yen (it is about 500 000 US dollars) for 5-7 TV channels, and the anime Fullmetal Alchemist to show at 6 pm will cost in 10 times more expensive!
The next couple steps are not necessary in the case if the anime will be drawn as the manga-based. A large majority of theses Japanese cartoons are on the market. By the way, if manga was successful or not, we can find out in advance whether anime will be successful. It is worth noting that sometimes it could be vice versa - manga is drawn by anime. For example, thus it was with FLCL.
