From "War of the Worlds: The True Story". This cue is from a later passage in the film as humanity desperately tries to regroup from the devastating blows it has taken from the Martian onslaught.

Is the clock running out on man's time on earth?

This cue includes one of my favorite shots of the film as the camera pulls out to show Wells as a speck, walking amidst a crumbling, desolate and abandoned London.
Director's Note: "Endangered Species" was a film I created exclusively to illustrate my recent book... 'Animation from Pencils to Pixels ~ Classical Techniques for Digital Animators'. The book is conceived to be the ultimate reference book for all contemporary animators, dealing with traditional techniques of movement and production process that can be utilized in the modern digital world.
