Well, maybe technically sort of a tongue-in-cheek horror than horror itself.
Since I now have film privileges on DA I thought I'd upload a real version of this instead of my crappy youtube version... I also thought today would be a great day to do it due to Halloween and all.
This is my first year animated short for the Open Show at Calarts. My film actually made it into the Producer's show so I was happy for that.
There's a lot wrong with it, but it was a lot of fun. My first time really extensively animating and I was just sort of thrown into it without really much of an idea as to what I was doing.
first year restrictions were:
no color (got the spot of color I have okayed)
no voice acting
1 minute 30 seconds
we wer given roughly 3 / 4 months to complete this assignment.
Animated by hand, traditionally, using punched paper and living off of a diet of cuties and poptarts.
The look was loosely inspired by Gorey's works as he is always going to be one of my favorite artists.
Currently working on my second year film. This time featuring a cute little girl named Maddy instead of a big fat man with whale teeth.
Music and sound by Jarred McAdams (my brother!).
Background Artwork and animation by me.
