Preview of a weird little short film


#1

Hey guys,

here is the first preview of a weird little animated short film I’m working on with two friends of mine. They are drawing and scanning, and I take their stuff, put our planned scenes together and animate everything, learning to use Synfig (and its pitfalls ^^) as I go. Most of the scenes aren’t finished yet, some are more or less still a proof of concept (i.e. mouth animations), but we are getting there!

Sometimes animatic looks way better than finish product. I suggest to do not trace the drawings but use them (bitmaps) to do the full animation using cutout and skeleton deformation techniques.
