I was hired to animate this 3 minute clay animation for an organization here in Kentucky that helps abused and neglected kids. This was a really fun project, it was the first piece I have done that was for a real client. I have never had to develop existing characters before, so it was interesting to take someone else's drawing and turn them into workable puppets. Everything for this piece was built from scratch and animated in my very humble studio (more like an attic.) It took several months of work, trying to fit enough time in and around my senior year of high school. Any comments, advice or criticism is welcome. Everybody on this site is so knowledgable and any help I can get is great for a learning animator.

Great job. It's awesome that you were able to keep the characters so clean with all those colors in their clothes. I love animating with clay but by the end of my shots my puppets are covered in lint, fuzz, and other colors.
