The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf released on Netflix last August and was a fantastic animation to go along with The Witcher show. I, personally, loved it and felt it blended the fantastical nature of magic and story better than the live-action show. Animation really is a great form to adapt such stories and can do a lot more than what special effects allows for yet.
Since we’re so close to the holidays now and I have a big post planned next weekend, this week I’m taking it a little easy and doing a “Recommended Watch” post. As such, I recommend watching not just the movie again for the wintery-aesthetic to go along with the season, but also the two short looks provided by Netflix at what went behind the animation:
1. The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf | Behind The Animation with Studio Mir
2. The Witcher: WitcherCon | Nightmare of the Wolf: Strokes of Genius
They provide insight into the design of the characters and show, something I’ve been learning more about in my animation certification program. It’s a short look, fun to watch, and cinematic, which is why I’m recommending them.
Happy Holidays, y’all. And see you next week with a post on Requiem of the Rose King.
