Age of Sail

AGE OF SAIL / Theatrical Version from Chromosphere on Vimeo.

 

A lovely piece of animation and story-telling recently shared on the WoodenBoat Forum Facebook page.

Just painting and drawing boats realistically is a challenge – perspective is so wonky with all the curves. To animate that in a way that feels right, with a sense of mass and inertia, is really hard.

The people who did this clearly understand and appreciate old style sailboats.
