Featured Video: Army of Darkness Intro Cartoon - StringAnime 1996

StringAnime's lead animator Frank Stringini has a foundation of animation rooted in DOS. His first animations were designed without the use of "Layers" or "Position Rotation or Scaling Tweens" and a Color pallette limit of 256 colors, in other words, he works with what he has. (1989-present)

This animated version of the Intro scene from the cult-classic film "Army of Darkness" (Starring Bruce Cambell) was created entirely in the DOS animation program, "Animator PRO."

This short took first place for the catagory of "experimental animation" in the Columbia College Chicago Film Festival in 1996.

Frank has a lot of old animations floating around, this is one of his favorites. Enjoy .
