Why so glum? You just won an Oscar!
But what does this mean for the future of animated films? Will the motion-cature process become the new thing? Is 2D dead? Is CG on the way out? Even Disney is now jumping on the mo-cap bandwagon, setting up their very own department dedicated to motion-capture.
A quick look at this year's animated films tells us that not everyone is switching over to mo-cap...yet. Shrek the Third, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Bee Movie are all CG and the hand drawn Simpsons Movie is sure to be a big hit this summer.
But you can probably bet that because of Happy Feet's success, every studio will start production on a mo-cap movie and have them out as early as next year.
Also, Torill Kove's The Danish Poet won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Subject.
