One More Time Worth One More Watch

Nelson Boles, a student at CalArts (who also studied at the Animation Academy), has released his latest film, titled This one time…

The Flash-animated film is not only technically spectacular, it’s also wildly imaginative. The characters seem to leap off the screen, and his selection of colors and subtle suggestions of depth all work together in such great harmony. A rock star animator in the making here, folks.

Big thanks to Edward Leahey for the story tip.
