Mean CD Machine

Well I decided to put my support behind Commodore and there new console the CD32. I thought a good advertising campaign that would get peoples attention and put across the CD32s superior features would be an original idea for an animation. In the anim the public are represented as a man who compares the 3 consoles (CD32, CD-i and the Mega CD) who are represented as super cars. The first one that crosses the finishing line wins not only the race but (deservingly) becomes the dominating CD console on the market.

To help them the man rewards the consoles/cars with 'add-ons' if they have a superior feature to they're competition eg. a turbo charger for having more colours etc. Whoever has the best features will win. No prizes for guessing!

As usual in my drive for a bit of originality in 3d animation this anim is a bit different from the norm. Featuring an expressive human face and some animated cars which are normally only in slideshows I hope I've come up with something to interest the jaded poweranim collector.
