“Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story” Trailer, Website, Review and Release Date
Earlier this week Disney invited media to a screening of “Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story”. Unfortunately it was in California and I wasn’t able to attend. But Disney has launched a website for the upcoming web series www.Disney.com/blank.
According to Stitch Kingdom, Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story will premiere its first three episodes (each around three minutes long) at D23 Expo next month before going live online immediately after at Disney.com/Blank. The remaining nine episodes will then be released exclusively online every Saturday and viewers are in for a treat.
Stitch Kingdom also wrote up a wonderful review. Here is a piece:
Set in a world that looks a little like Disneyland, Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story follows the journey of two Vinylmation figures, Blank and Bow, that don’t quite fit in with the world around them. In their world, Vinylmations are born blank before being given a paint-job that determines their identity.
since there was neither the time nor money for computer wizardry such as CGI: the backdrops were constructed using mixed media; the trains — based on the Vinylmation monorail mold — were 3D-printed and painted.
It looks more amazing than I could ever thought possible. Here is Disney’s official trailer.
There is also a behind the scenes video:
I am very excited to see this web series now. The stop motion animation looks absolutely beautiful.
There will also be a Vinylmation set designed by Thomas Scott based on Blank. Here’s hoping for one of those Dino looking cranes!
