Finally, after 10 months of production, Nick Cross released his latest film, The Pig Farmer.
What can I say ? nothing bad.... it's a fantastic film ! Elaborated and colourful backgrounds, good animation and some nice camera effects.
I started to know about Nick Cross some years ago.... Always I like John Kricfalusi's cartoons, one day I discovered his blog and thanks to this I started to know some people that worked or developed their careers thanks to John K. Like Katie Rice, Kali Fontecchio, Marlo Meekins, Nick Cross...and others.
Two years ago I bought Nick's first film ( I think it's the first ), 'The Waif of Persephone'. I liked it ! The last year, he released another short, 'Yellow Cake'. It's nice, has a better production, and you can see the artistic evolution of Nick. And finally ' The Pig Farmer'. If you don't know who is Nick and never have seen one of his short, now you have a good excuse.
The difference between The Pig Farmer and the others is that for the first time he used a funding platform. The web is IndieGoGo. I wrote about this type of platforms here, and I say the same: I like this kind of platforms, people who supports the projects are really interested or believe in the person behind.
Well, that's all ! you can see now the three short: The waif of Persephone, Yellow Cake and The Pig Farmer, and, if you prefer you can visit Nick's profile in Vimeo with more videos.
