A stop-motion animation about a haunted train in the Old West. I shot it on 16mm film, using a Bolex. All the models are paper. I used illustrations I had done, and cut the pieces out, then glued wires to the back so they could hold their poses while I shot a frame of animation. All the ghosts were done on greenscreen (aka green posterboard).
I also had the privilege of using a Nagra reel-to-reel tape recorder to capture, in gloriously rich analogue, the sounds of a real steam train in Colorado, and all my foley and voices.
The music was written for the film by Bobby Shields.
First Year Group Animation Project - for university
I'm not 100% happy with it, but it was my first time doing a non-solo project and I was working with begginers who had no prior animation experience. Saying that, I think they did really well as beginners and produced a pretty good first project!
I though I would upload it none the less to show I am still alive and animating. :-P
*ALSO* The volume is quite low, so you'll need to turn it up a bit
EDIT: If DA's being weird, you can watch it on my youtube channel here: [link]
I was inspired to make this short animation after some of the comments I received on "She's Just Being Pinkie Pie" Lot's of people were saying they would be really excited if Pinkie Pie popped out of their computer monitor! I got to thinking, and, to be honest, that would scare the crap out of me! ( I'd get over it soon enough though, and then... PARTY TIME!!!! )
So as y'all may know, My brother and I collaborated from opposite sides of the world via skype and 4 shared to bring you this new glich/electro song! Hope you like!
