You can watch a larger, less jumpy/laggy version here: [link]

I have noticed that on this player that the animation 'jumps' a bit as it skips frames, I'm not sure if this is due to an an error with the player, lag, my large file size or all of the above. I've also notice that the previews are broken and showing distorted gray things, I'll see if there's a way to get these fixed.

My final film project for school. This film was based on a story from a short children book my friend and I started making but never really finished.

Personal:

I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it, this animation was really just a series of compromises for me. On one hand, I was able get it in the 4 months I had to do it, on the other hand, to get it done in that time frame I had to cut out a lot of the original story and even a character and also cut a lot of corners in terms of the animation itself; I do feel that the short suffered for it. Or maybe it's just so far from what I originally wanted it to be that I can't look at it objectively yet. Who knows, but it was a good learning experience and I think it better prepared me to do some better independent stuff in the future.

Technical:

Animation:
This film was created using 2D mediums. The animation itself (roughs and cleanup) is done by hand using a mechanical pencil and colored in digicel flipbook 5.


Backgrounds:
Backgrounds in this film are all drawn and cleaned up in pencil and painted in photoshop for the "real" world and painter for the "puddle" world.


Post:
Effects and post work done in Adobe After Effects and composed in Premiere.


Music:
Original composition created for this film by the very talented Trevor Hewer

@00:18When she slides down its a bit fast paced, but I understand that it would be. Maybe try slowing things down such as, instead of having it go fast, have it go slower. That way it can allow not only the audience time to take in you amazing work (which I love the detail) but your style too.
