Dinosaus Animated Tribute Preview

A few months ago we spotlighted the early stages of the work on a computer animated short film based on the beloved 1990s Henson TV series Dinosaurs designed and produced by friend of the blog Davide Maugeri. Check out the first picture of the short, along with a brief description of Davide’s work, below!

“Recently I’ve teamed up with some workmates to make a CG tribute to Jim Henson. A one and a half minute animated short featuring two characters from one of our favorite Jim Henson shows, Baby and Earl Sinclair from Dinosaurs. We’d like to stress that it is only meant as a homage and tribute to the genius of Jim Henson which made the series possible. Since this was a big hit in the early 90s and it ended up forgotten, our main goal is to bring these characters back to life and remind people they still exist, and they still can make us laugh like they used to. Here is a sneak-peek picture that shows both the characters as they appear in their new CG look. The short should be complete by the holiday season (December).”

And now you can check out three exclusive screenshots from the short. They look spectacular and I’m so excited to see the finished product! The characters look great, the emotions on their faces are fantastic, and the inclusion of one of the classic “Hugga Wugga” creatures is awesome! Enjoy.

We’ll keep you updated with the progress on this short as Davide provides updates! Thanks to Davide for sharing this with us. We hope you enjoy the screenshots!

  2. Nice! I have yet to really delve into the Dinosaurs series, but using what I have seen of the show, those screenshots look fantastic! The CG incarnations of the characters look pitch perfect, and I love the inclusion of the “You are My Sunshine” creature in one of those pics. Cannot wait to see the finished project. 🙂
