I’ve re-watched this Batman Death Metal Animation music video a hundred times and It still gets a chuckle out of me. ArhyBES created a music video for Dethklok and it went viral ever since. I just love the humour in the animation and that it pokes fun at the always cool and calm Batman character.
The style is fun to watch, the flow of the “storyboard” is crazy but still makes sense and it just shows you how well people receive humour in a music video, eventhough they might not be death metal fans. The video might not be for all ages so you have been warned!
I’ve stumbled on isometric illustrations and animations a while back and since then I’ve enjoyed the style. There’s nothing that sticks home more than a well executed animated video that delivers a message. The voice acting is clear and flows seamlessly with the animation. Plus the videos talk about a plastic toxic vortex in the ocean!
I have the great opportunity of regularly chatting to some great key players in the animation industry (and stalking/chatting to them on social platforms) and it’s great to see how passionate and driven these people are. If you had a look at the animation industry in South Africa a few years ago you’ll be astounded to see the amazing growth (literally leaps and bounds) that we’ve had because of them (and obviously the support of other like minded and passionate fans!).
Film releases, schools, animation studios and interest in the industry has grown phenomenally and each day you see a lot of activity on social platforms surrounding these as well.
We’ve seen the Slimtime animation a few times and I can’t believe we haven’t published anything about the animation yet as it’s such a true testament to love and features some impressive work from some top of the line animators. The story is fluid and progresses at a great pace, the animation style is something that we truly admire and the overall package makes this short animation a great success!
