I'm speechless. This animated intro sequence for the upcoming Beatles Rock Band video game is simply stunning. I'd love to know more about the people responsible for it. They manage to tell the career-spanning, mind-bending story of the Beatles in a couple of minutes, seamlessly blending well designed 2-D and 3-D styles of animation. What I wouldn't give for a feature length film this cool...

UPDATE: Offworld.com is reporting that the intro was handled by Gorillaz animator Pete Candeland of Passion Pictures, "based on Candeland's similarly jaw-dropping work on Guitar Hero II's TV ad and the full-3D Rock Band 2 intro"
