Cube Pong 02 – Super Heroes
CubePong round two is finished and up!
When the poll over at cubepong.net went up and I saw ‘Super Heroes’was on it, well lets just say i needed new pants…
So many ideas rushed into my head that i couldn’t even thing straight. I knew right away that i wanted to do a Spider-Cube, but needed to figure out just what i was going to do with it. Since I had no choice but to take a late time slot, last again actually, I knew i had to have a great finish, and what better way to sign it off then have spider-cube fly into the camera as a fade to black!
Ok, that shit up there is a lie. I had no intention of doing that… I ran out of time cleaning some stuff up, but thats ok, because the finish, although i timed it too fast, was still awesome. My original plan was to have the spider-cube swing in from a distance, alternating from side to side like you would expect spiderman to do, then fly past the camera and while shooting a web ball at it for the fade off… Alas, it is what it is, and im happy with it
Below you will find the excerpt from the cubepong.net site.

There’s nothing like escaping in a good super hero movie or book. To be a part of a fantasy world and drool over mind blowing visual effects and heroics.
Using their favourite super hero as a basis for their animation, animators and designers from around the world collaborated on this video, showing off some of their amazing skills for the world to see.
