ADVERTS - Russian Railways by Alexandre Petrov

I just saw this animated advert for Russian Railways while perusing the blog.

This animation came out of the Pascal Blais Studio, which is in Old Montreal, and it was animated by Alexandre Petrov.  You can almost taste the texture of the paint in this animation.  It is an exquisite piece of work.

If you're not aware of the work that Pascal Blais Studio puts out you should definitely look them up.  They've been on the cutting edge of producing auteur animation for advertising since the studio was founded by Pascal Blais and Bernard Lajoie in 1983.  The first auteur animator added to their ranks, aside from Pascal himself, was iconic Canadian animator, Cordell Barker (The Cat Came Back), and they've continued to add to their talent pool ever since by attracting animators like Patrick Boivin (Dragon BabyIron Man vs Bruce Lee), Robert Valley (Character Designer-Tron UprisingGorrilaz), and Malcolm Sutherland (The Astronomer's DreamUMBRA).
