unfinished post-apocalyptic animated movie sample... (Unfortunately, this project will remain unfinished) The script, the plot, the idea and characters are created by the group of us(several artists), the work is done by us also, but now we have to stop the process.
Inked frame by frame on video footage via Wacom tablet and Photoshop, the background interior and objects are 3d-generated, everything is composed in AE.
This animation was made for a second year uni project. It took quite some time to put together, and I was lucky to have the help of a friend with the lighting of the candleswhich took up the most of my time. I'd like to also thank Raana the model for her time and patience.
Music : Mates Of State - My Only Offer - download the full version of their song it brilliant!! (I have pemission from the artist to use the song in a non commercial environment)
[Okay, just in case- this is the original The Secret of NIMH footage except from only about 5 seconds of animation added by me. Since, you know, somebody could think I made the whole thing. Surely.]
I think you should watch the film to appreciate the video and the video's title in its whole glory.
The sound is gone. I couldn't find any decent copy with English dubbing, I found one French version though, and when I was all excited, after rendering I realised there's no sound anyway. Aaand I'm afraid I left a bit too much original footage after the cut. Whatever. That's not the point.
That's not the point. I learned that from Don Bluth.
Boy, was that movie dumb. And yet it made me produce what is perhaps the most elaborate piece of fanart I'm ever going to make. And- that's funny on its own- it's probably the most finished animation I have done in my life. But Timmy is probably my favourite character in this movie- he doesn't say anything and appears in the film for some 10 minutes at best, so he is the last one to blame.
Thank you and
I do not own those characters, and I do not claim any copyright towards the authentic footage which is (c) Don Bluth/Aurora, I only made the small bit of animation which I'm sure Don Bluth and film producers would be glad not to own.
