This was my buddy Jesse's stop-mo class project. Just saw he put it online today. He designed and built everything, lit and filmed it, did the post work, and animated the freaky end bit. I mostly just animated.
It was a totally spur of the moment project. He had a night and half to finish it. So he called me up to come help animate. We didn't have time to actually make anything. We were just lucky to have made a bunch of random characters out of wire the year before. They weren't proper puppets at all, but it had to do. Did all the animation and compositing at the same time in one night. It was intense but a lot of fun.
Here's where the character came from...
At least once a year we get together to basically drink and act like fools, tell tall tales, and play with whatever we find in the junk drawers. haha. So about a year before, Jesse and I made these abstract characters out of wire and a bunch of random junk.
anyways... Just weird little things we do sometimes, and one of em ended coming to life in a pinch. hehehe
Hope you enjoyed something here.
