I decided to chop up a strangely-cut piece of illustration board into a buncha little tiny pieces and then paint gouache caricatures on them.
An Educational Film on the Hair Growth Stages in a Male
This was my 48-hour film for CalArts ’08! The word for this year’s film fest was “Hair”. I’d been wanting to make a brochure out of this concept, but decided it would actually make a pretty entertaining educational film, and was perfect for the subject matter. When they said 48 hours, they meant 48 hours with a week for editing. Initially, animating this took 3 days– sandwiched between classes and homework, plus an extra hour for voicing (which, unfortunately, took an hour; I was told the next day that people could hear me in the dorm halls and were wondering what was going on!)
I should also mention that my friends won’t let me get away with saying “gravity” anymore. I have to say “GWAVITY!” else I get scolded *cough, cough, CARLOS! cough*.
Enjoy and be enlightened 😀
This was our sixth project in our animation class, for which our teacher provided us a simple stick figure character, gave us some music to inspire us to dance and then made us animate him dancing. What a tough one this was!!
All painted in gouache; spent approximately three hours on each.
