Hey All! Back in June I worked with Team Best Friends on a short film for the 48-hour animation film festival. As per usual, I created opening credits for the film. The concept was based off of child-like imagination and drawing of monsters and fear of the dark. I really wanted to sell the idea of child-like quality animation, as well as a creepy vibe considering we had Suspense/Thriller as a genre.
I drew a lot of influence from the titles for Drop Dead Fred (one of my favorite movies) and the creepy title sequence from the movie Mama.
For the sequence, I create some really simple animation cycles and composited them in after effects.
It has been just about 24 hours since I worked with my buddy Ajay (The Devil’s Garage) on an animation for JUICED! JUICED! is a 24 hr animation competition held in collaboration with the Citrus Cel Animation Film Festival.
It was quite a fun, interesting, and extremely draining challenge. Working from 2 different time zones, assisting students, hosting/running the event, and trying to work on your own animation in 24 hrs…INSANITY! Here are the characters I designed for the project, and a few of the layout I created as well.
