My finished animation "Birds", and a new project

Postby mr_sabby » Wed Sep 19, 2012 10:06 pm

Hello all! First, here is an animation I completed about 2 weeks ago called "Birds".

This was animation to test out doing sound design, and simply put, just finishing up and following through on a simple story idea. Hand drawn, took about 2 months to do.


Current Project:


"House"(Pending Ttitle)

I was sitting around with my friend one day, and we lamented that neither of us had seen an animation in 2d that had a scary or horrific element too it, that was believable, one of the many reasons being that digital colors are much more vivid and bright, and that creating a setting that feels believable is part of the fear. So I sought out to try an attempt at something vaguely suspense, creepy, horror related. In doing so, I tried something new with how I come up with the story. For this piece Im simply coming up with story as I go, creating a rough, slightly animated storyboard to showcase before I do the real thing. As such, as much as I have storboarded, is as much as the audience, myself and everyone knows so far! We'll see how this goes.., stay tuned. For now, here is a couple scenes storyboarded so far:

I think the animation of the bird is great, pretty lifelike. But the old man's volume and proportions change a lot during the short. Just something to keep in mind for next time!

The storyboard of the creepy animation is pretty nice. If you add some dark colors, eerie music, I'd be very afraid haha.

Keep going!

I like the different perspectives in the bird movie. I have to agree with Cart00n. The proportions of the old man in the scenes vary very considerably. In the final sequence where the man gets up from the bench, there are several errors.
Overall I think your film artistically demanding!
