An insane amount of detail went into that 3-D Futurama intro

Most Futurama fans would likely agree that a 3-D adaption of the cartoon is a bad idea, but animator Alex Zakharov’s 32-second 3-D test of the show’s intro was nevertheless charming as hell. The animator’s attention to detail was clear from that brief video, albeit much of it of the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it variety. But now he’s compiled a “Making Of” that reveals exactly how much work went into recreating the world of the Planet Express team for less than half a minute. The intro was clearly a labor of love, and this video is a reminder that 3-D animation can be insanely time-consuming.
