In Toronto, the walk signals count down to let pedestrians know how much time is left before the signal changes. In Havana, they not only count down the "walk" but also count down the "don't walk" for both pedestrians and drivers. That seems like an improvement. In addition, though, the "walk" sign actually walks. While the animation is not great, it's a nice idea. Is this done anywhere else in the world?
While I'm sure that there is no connection, it reminded me of this Sheridan student film made by third year students several years ago.
I've worked as an animator, writer, producer and director in TV animation for 29 years. I created the cgi series Monster By Mistake.
I hold a Masters degree from York University in Cinema and Media Studies and am currently teaching animation at Sheridan College.
