outstanding shot


Listen. One of us has to stay down here and blow up a lot of silly tin men, and one of has to go up there and look after a lot of very scared people, day after day, for the rest of their lives, and keep them safe. Now the question is this, Nardole: which one of us is stronger?



Gianluigi “Gigi” Buffon, Goalkeeper, one of only eighteen players to have made at least 1,000 professional career appearances; with 168 international caps, Buffon is also the most capped player in the history of the Italian national team, the joint fifth-most capped male international footballer of all time, alongside Iván Hurtado, and the most capped European international player ever. He is widely regarded by players, pundits and managers to be one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, and, by some, to be the greatest ever. Buffon is known for his “outstanding shot-stopping” and for being “a vocal organiser of the defence and a key dressing room personality”. He is currently the most expensive goalkeeper in history, following his 53 million transfer from Parma to Juventus in 2001. Buffon holds the record for the most clean sheets in Serie A, and with the Italy national team; he also holds the record for the longest streak without conceding a goal in Serie A history: over 12 league matches, he went unbeaten for 974 consecutive minutes during the 2015–16 season, as well as having achieved the most consecutive clean sheets (10) in Serie A in that same season.

When wandering through the aspen forests in the fall, one can easily forget about all the worries in life. The rustling of the leaves mixes with that fresh autumn scent and all you can see is the beauty of aspen with bright golden colors. To wander through an aspen forest is to finally feel at home.

The forests this autumn were truly spectacular and went on for weeks.  After most of the trees had lost all their leaves, this grove near Kebler Pass still looked outstanding.

Hey Moon Animate fans! Did you know I slipped up and accidentally rendered one of our animators’ WIP shots to YouTube instead of his final shot? Please watch Jeremy Paoletti’s final shot above!

Jeremy came to Moon Animate towards the end of the project. A handful of shots were being distributed to the waiting list, and he pretty much guaranteed himself a spot when he showed me he was an animator on Ernest & Celestine. Go rent or buy it if you haven’t already! On top of delivering an outstanding shot (which I thought just had an interesting duochromatic color palette), Jeremy assembled a wonderful video showing the various stages of his shot. It’s the whole reason why I decided to have the opening credits show the animators’ work in progress because it so beautifully breaks down how much work goes into animation. And then I was a complete twit and didn’t see his e-mail asking about the shot used in the final render until two weeks after he sent it.

Fortunately, Jeremy, along with all the other Moon Animate animators, have been completely understanding of what a beast (and a joy!) this was to manage and things fall through the cracks sometimes. I really wanted to share his work with you because he not only turned out a great piece of animation, but he was kind enough to share his expertise with the fans. This will be the shot used in the final render for Vimeo.

Thank you, Jeremy!
