The Picture of Dorian Gray added to Vimeo Staff Picks!

The Kuriositas blog was once again kind enough to feature one of my animations, this time my Major Project, The Picture of Dorian Gray: http://www.kuriositas.com/2011/11/picture-of-dorian-gray-wildes-classic.html.

"This is an 8 Minute adaptation of Picture of Dorian Gray. It represents Thomas Beg’s 15 week Major Project at UCA Rochester as part of his CG Arts and Animation degree. It is exceptionally well done, retaining the gothic eeriness of the original as well as ably pulling the story in to eight minutes. Perhaps it is best if you have read the book or seen one of the movies before, but if you are studying the novel this could very easily beat Cole’s Notes when it comes to helping you remember the sequence of events!"

The result this time is that it was added to the Vimeo Staff Picks and thus featured on the front page of Vimeo! http://vimeo.com/channels/staffpicks

The Vimeo Staff Picks channel is filled to the brim with pretty much the best independent short films and animations from around the world. So, it's an amazing honour for lil ol' Dorian to be sitting there alongside them.

This was such an amazing watch and beautifully summed up the story. You are very talented and I can't wait to see what more you do... :)

(I loved your Hieronymus painting, too!)
