Last spring, I was part of a team of 8 graduate students at Savannah College of Art and Design that made a animated short film in 10 weeks! The film was an exploration of the hybrid possibilities of CG and stop motion animation. The challenge of integrating these two worlds was a wonderful problem solving experience. I was in charge of the vfx, lighting, rendering and compositing for the film. I also helped lead the stop motion fabrication team, built the cloud world and the cloud shepherd. The 10 week film timeline was a real challenge, but our limitations provided the best learning experience imaginable. Everyone on the team stretched their talents, put in their very best work, and devoted all their efforts to the film. Though we could continue working on this project, we decided to post the film and share it with everyone. Enjoy!
