Um, that was a waste of the artists` time. Coulda been picking their noses or something.
As humans, we`re more familiar with how humans move. The more realistic the body is, the more the flaws in the movements stick out. CG animal movements are just as accurate at CG humans, but they look totally realistic to us because we aren`t as familiar with how real animals move.
It`s called the `uncanny valley`.
Elephants are pretty amazing creatures even without jumping on trampolines. I didn`t know that they could actually use their trunks as a snorkle until I was in fourth grade and did a project on the african elephant. Before the project, I thought an elephant had only done that in Tarzan.
"Hey, look at the elephants, they`re standing on their hind legs and leaning on each other. That`s kinda cool, you know, I guess, sort of. Oh wait, look! They`re gonna do another trick! Oh wait..nope, nevermind, they`re doing the same trick again."
Yes, it would have been way better if it was blue, and wore a cap with feathers on it, and if it wasn`t a trampoline but a rocket launcher, or if it had been a different movie than this one.
Also, Star Wars would have been better if Obi Wan was taller and if Anakin had been a baby elephant, and if it took place on earth instead of in space.
Carrots would have been better if they`d been apples.
Enough sarkasm.Brilliantly made flick this, that elephant is spot on, the details are remarkably crisp and clear.Foley`s brilliant too, tiny details, like the squeak of a foot against the floor.Subtly silly.
