Default Diving Giraffes

Subject: Diving Giraffes; Amazing video technology

We have come a long way since Disney's Steamboat Willy!

This is a good indication of the capabilities of today's videographers. It is entertaining, but a little unsettling because it looks so real. Watch to the end past the credits.

It is kind of creepy. Neat, but creepy.

The ending is a tad disconcerting since they do look real, LOL.

That's some extremely impressive CGI....the giraffes do look amazingly real but it's apparent from the opening (Cube Creations) that we're about to see CGI. Still, it IS very impressive and unbelievably real.

MsP, you make a keen observation, we have indeed come a looooong way from Steamboat Willy. Can you imagine what Walt would say if he were still alive? He lived and breathed for stuff like this....thank you so much for sharing it, it's amazing!!

That was amazing. I have to be a wet blanket and say that I wish they had done a better job on the teeth and the tongue. Giraffe tongues are black.
