I really enjoyed animating the blog banner a couple of months ago and I kept the idea in the back of my mind that such really short format would be a great way to a; explore new techniques b; stretch my creative muscle a bit and c; have fun!
I made this animatic over two evenings last week, loosely based on something that happened to my wife, and I find the format really freeing, because there isn't much expectation. It's a nice break from Violince in that sense.
I already started animating and if I had a bit of trouble with the backgrounds-for which I had something specific in mind that I couldn't quite capture- the character work has been fun so far.
A new reel with the rough animation will follow.
