Local animator & illustrator Scott Benson has already received so much attention on the blogrolls lately that we probably don't even need to share the video above with you, but for the couple of you that haven't seen this yet, you're certainly in for a treat. I think this is Scott's best work yet, which displays his exploration of digital lighting techniques, texturing, and pushing his abstract illustrations, not to mention the perfectly timed animation. You can read a great interview with insight to how he works and created this video for the Rendezvous' "The Murf" on Motionographer. After just four months after posting the video it has close to 150,000 views. In addition to the Motionographer feature, it didn't hurt to be featured on CBS News, Laughing Squid, InsideOut 7, Drawn!, among countless various other plugs online and beyond. I think I'm not alone when I say I can't wait to see what Scott puts out next!
And why not checkout his latest reel while you're at it.
Oh yea, and if you're not already familiar with the Yinzpiration blog, go read his interview there!
