Goodbye Uncanny Valley
18 October, 2017

Check out an amazing look at the evolution of computer graphics. Goodbye Uncanny Valley is a short documentary written and animated by Alan Warburton with the support of Tom Pounder and Wieden + Kennedy that discovers the history of CGI. It all started so many years ago and now the industry is capable of generating photorealistic results. What’s next?   

It’s 2017 and computer graphics have conquered the Uncanny Valley, that strange place where things are almost real… but not quite. After decades of innovation, we’re at the point where we can conjure just about anything with software. The battle for photoreal CGI has been won, so the question is… what happens now?

Alan Warburton 

The author wisely mixed animated backgrounds generously provided by QuixelKatarina Markovic and Roman Senko with breakdowns of films and some other outstanding CGI works to tell the tale of this wonderful industry. You can find more details on the project here. What are your thoughts on the short?
