The Animated Ninja Turtles

Here's a pretty cool Ninja turtles tribute by Malcolm Sutherland

I love the dudes reason behind the video as well

"A tribute to the Ninja Turtles.. ever since I read the original black and white comics as a kid I have been a fan.

In TMNT Vol. 1 by Mirage Studios they frequently had guest artists and almost every comic was a totally different style. In particular, when I read #37 and #42 By Rick McCollum & Bill Anderson it totally changed my life. No kidding! Those books are so beautiful, and are so intense and full of magic that they left a deep mark on me. 

Anyway, I always wanted to do a TMNT comic myself, but in the meantime here is a fan animation instead. I know its super nerdy to make fan videos but I don't care, making this was like my 10 year old dreams come true.

Although it's my voice, the line that splinter says; "I am here, my son(s)" is from the first TMNT movie, made in 1990. It is one of my favourite moments because it always hits me as some sort of hidden zen-master-like riddle, as if he is actually saying "here we are, THIS is it" or something."

You should definitely check out some of  Malcolm Sutherland other animations as they are very rad. He's got such a beautiful distinct style

Oh and have you guys seen the new official ninja turtles show. Here's that trailer

Looks and feels a bit like the Teen Titans series (which I really enjoyed) but in 3d. I'm not sure what I feel about this though. I love the use of sound effects text and the design is growing on me. I'm sure I'll check out a few episodes
