Bruce the gritter unwittingly makes an enemy as he carries out his job, clearing the roads of snow. A short stop motion animation.
Thanks Mike :)
It was awesome! a great inspiration!
What a great film, all around. I turned it on yesterday, and couldn't look away. Technically very advanced, as well. Beautiful and subtle use of computer effects and matte paintings, and spot on character animation.
I'm curious to know more about it! Where did you make this? What what the process? Please share anything you want to...
Hi Evan! Thanks very much for watching! Very happy you liked it. I made it in my house over a couple of years, around other jobs etc. I finally finished early last year. I liked doing it, there are lots of parts and it was never dull, just time-consuming.
I used Stopmo pro for the animation, Flash for the 2d fx and Fusion for the digital fx and compositing. I did a Kickstarter campaign to finance the sound last January, and found a sound pro to do it.
Thanks for the positivity, really appreciate it!
Really wonderful. Not only animation but history very well narrated.
What material is the snow?
Thanks Antonio! The snow is made of cotton balls which I made damp while animating. The falling snow is digital, I made it with Fusion :)
This is spectacular! The storytelling, design, lighting, sound... Everything. It's apparent that you put your heart into it.
Loved it! Great production value and really nice animation!
Made in your house, around other jobs?? There's a lot of that, but it's very rare for it to reach a standard that any professional studio would be proud to put their name to. A beautiful film, well told and flawless in every department. Thank you for sharing it!
