While Dreamworks Animation’s movie often feel a bit uninventive compared to Pixar, they’re trying something new with Me And My Shadow, a mix of hand-drawn and CG animation that’s due out Spring 2014.
Now the first poster for the film has been released over on Facebook. There’s also a quote from DreamWorks Animation Chief Creative Officer Bill Damaschke, who says, “Me and My Shadow, which is out in spring of 2014, is a combination of CG and traditional hand drawn animation. There is a reason to tell the story in that fashion. It’s about what would happen if your shadow, that has been following you around and basically just follows what you do your whole life, just stood up and took over. The shadows will be animated hand drawn, and the other characters will be CG animated. There is a reason to do it [hand drawn animation] that felt creatively interesting.”
