Space Stallions and Wing

Two great projects from students at The Animation Workshop.

Space Stallions is a brilliant homage to 80's cartoons:

Story:
As darkness is covering the multiverse, far away in the galaxy of the wild stallion, a spark of hope is born. Guided by the light of Mother Mustang, the Space Stallions must defeat the Demon of darkness, Destructo.

Composers: Friðfinnur Oculus Sigurðsson






Wing is totally different in tone, featuring Dementor-like monsters:
Story: A solitary, one winged creature called Wing is harassed by a group of oppressive crows due to being weak and different from them. He decides that he wants to overcome his disability and escape from the forest. He builds a catapult and a mechanical wing to accomplish this. When he launches himself away from the forest, the wing malfunctions, and he crashes into the territory of the crows. The crows are about to harm him, but are then lured away by a two-winged humanoid, who the crows attack instead. Wing finds the creature, and discovers it is a female of his own kind, and that the crows have torn one of her wings off. As the crows come towards them, Wing gets the idea that he and the female can fly in tandem by flapping each of their single wings while holding onto each other, and they manage to escape from the forest.

  1. Space Stallions is to 80s cartoons what Drive is to 80s films.
    Those designs and the animation are better than any homage deserves to be. I'd pass up M.A.S.K. and Jemm for this any day.
