Weapons of Natural Selection

What would happen if animals possessed weapon-like anatomy?  Would it turn the tide of the food chain?  These are the questions posed by Andrew Hess who then went on to create this animated project around the whole concept.  And it is very, very cool.

Maya was used for the 3D elements and for composting everything, Andrew used After Effects.  The music and sound effects are provided by his friend Aaron Rutledge.  This project is very much a labor of love and it shows!  The whole idea of butterflies made of bullets (and so on!) is something which marries itself well to this style of fast paced and frenetic animation.
