Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Joe Johnston’s classic The Rocketeer, and in memory of the late Dave Stevens, creator of the iconic character, animator John Banana (yes, apparently that’s his real name) has put together this wonderfully cute CGI short. The style is Pixar-central, but that’s fine by us, if anything, that the boy looks like a young Carl Fredricksen just makes it even better. We wouldn’t mind this turning into a feature-length creation.

FAN THE FIRE is a digital magazine about lifestyle and creative culture. Launching back in 2005 as a digital publication about Sony’s PSP handheld games console, we’ve grown and evolved now covering the arts and lifestyle, architecture, design and travel.

We’ve been featured on the front page of Reddit and produced off-shoot club night Friday Night Fist Fight, launched a Creative Agency and events column The London List.
