Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale.
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top.
There were some
insaneawesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.
This whole exterior action sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!
I am SO proud of this sequence! It was a TON of work for all involved but looking at this final product I think we can all agree that the juice was worth the squeeze. Remember this is “TV animation” folks….. So many stars aligned to make not only this sequence but this entire series possible. From the writing to the acting to the design to the boards through the final animation and last but not least the amazing sound fx and score! Not sure when we’ll get another one like it.
