Let’s congratulate The Croods for winning The Animated Effects award at the 41st Annie Awards! In honor of this achievement here is a progressive reel that was recently released by DreamWorks Animation Studios. This film is a prime example of how far we’ve come in the digital arts. I personally thoroughly enjoyed the film’s story and character dynamics, along with its incredible visual effects. In a prehistoric world that is falling apart right under their feet, the Croods experience nature lashing out at them again and again. From thick black smoke to a mass horde of man-eating birds to the ground crumbling into an abyss, the film’s excellent Visual Effects department certainly gave this family the cinematic journey of a lifetime. This short video is just a taste of how The Croods was made. They certainly deserved this Annie Award!
