There it is, finally. My 2nd year animated short film 'Thief'. I've been busy with it for a few months, but the actual animation was done in about 4 weeks - with a minimum of 12 hours work a day, 7 days a week. The story is about... well, just watch it. The music was composed and made by Niek Lucassen, a talented music composer from the same school as me.
I think about adding some visual effects to the jetpack exhaust in the near future, as well as sound effects (since everything feels a bit empty like it is right now). Also, I'm sorry for the bad quality - the original, uncompressed file is a bit too big for DA.
PLEASE TURN THE VOLUME UP A BIT (otherwise the music will probably disappear into nothingness, which would be a shame)
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.
This is a music video I made for Yoav Landau aka TheLivingTombstone. You might recognize some of my recent gifs from it. I've been working on it a lot over the past 50 days or so. It's about monsters. But the monsters might not be who you'd expect!
Alright!! I can now upload films to DeviantART! That means instead of linking to my YouTube page, I can actually have my stuff here!!! How exciting!
(I shall copy/paste my comments from the other one..)
This was my final project for my Beginning Animation class in the spring semester of 2009. Created with sharpie and cel paint on good old fashioned animation cels. Backgrounds printed out from Photoshop. Filmed on a 35mm animation camera. Laser pointer dot created with a laser pointer.
It took approximately 3 months to make and 10 hours to shoot. I never would have finished painting all the cels if it weren't for the four other members of my family pitching in for a weekend. I love them so! *hugs!*
All and all, I'm very proud of how it turned out. I was actually one of the few people in my class to use actual cels - most of the others used paper. A lot of extra work on my part, but I think it was worth it!
Inspired by the classic Fritz Lang film, this cinematic piece explores a rich environment of urban and mechanical forms full of light and mystery. The work was commissioned as album teaser for the electronic music act "Metropolis" and attempts to create a window into a world of heavy dark beautiful intensity.
