Midweek Motivations: Maestro, with Making of Video

Maestro by Illogic studio and Bloom Pictures

Maestro, from Illogic Studio and Bloom Pictures, is a CG animated short featuring forest animals that perform a quick operatic number, Vincenzo Bellini’s “Guerra Guerra”. It’s beautifully done!

If the name Illogic sounds familiar, we featured them almost exactly two years ago in our article Midweek Motivation: “Garden Party” Short Student Film. Garden Party also features frogs and is a short student film that has won numerous film festival awards, including an Academy Award nomination! There’s a behind the scenes video as well for Garden Party so check it out for more inspiration.
