CGI is so passé II
The phenom of the “Got Talent” shows has created another YouTube superstar like the UK’s Susan Boyle. The latest success story is from the Ukraine spin-off version. 24 year old Kseniya Simonova (who ended up winning the show) creates an amazing sand animation on stage. She tells the story of people’s suffering during the German invasion of WWII.
This is another example that kick-ass creativity doesn’t need to done with the latest CGI. All you need is a lightbox and a pile of sand. Throw in Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters performed by a Finnish cello, and you got quite a scenario.
It is a bit long, but the constant changes in the story line really draw you in. Check it out!
