Finally, some Animation!
Well. Twelve seconds of animation. This a piece inspired from a comic/ animated property I’ve been working on at a snails pace, essentially about a pilot’s rivalry:
We decided to work with these boys when we were asked to make a short opener for the Animation festival here this summer. I love working in this style, graphic, 2d, but with hints of 3d for depth. We used flash for the characters, photoshop for the BG’s and After Effects for animation and compositing. Had hopes to use full 3d for the aircraft, but we’re going to have to save that for the TV series.
Here’s how some backgrounds and props looked before animation.
