The video of the complete Cuphead – A Knockout! Artist Talk is now online!
Cuphead – developed and published by Studio MDHR Entertainment – is a gloriously fiendish indie run-and-gunner game inspired by classic Rubber hose cartoons of the 1930s. Painstakingly created using techniques of the 1930s era: traditional hand drawn animation, watercolour backgrounds, and original jazz recordings, Cuphead team members/artists Tina Nawrocki, Caitlin Russell, and Ali Morbi gave a behind the scenes look at three different aspects of Cuphead’s artistic development.
Presented in front of a packed house at OCAD University, in Toronto, Canada, on November 24th.
Q&A, moderated by Hand Eye Society’s Sagan Yee with assistance from TAIS’s Jenn Snider
