So while my pet project is still in the making, I had to make this little doodad for my final in Character Design Class at KCAI.
I had to interview someone outside of the class room and goad a small anecdote out of the interviewee that would (hopefully) shed some light on our humanity.
This is the story I got. A burnt out teen paying his newly acquired friend a visit. I've been working on this project for six weeks and I'm still not sure if there is some deeper meaning to be found.
Special thanks to Alex Regenold (aka NeroSkwid) for letting me animate his little story and using his beautiful voice, as well as illustrating the title card!
If you click on the vimeo link at the end of the animation you can check out the original animatic for Fred, as well as past assignments and pencil tests I've been working on!
By the by, I'm looking for actual critiques.
I'd like to keep making content for NG and for everyone to enjoy, and also better myself as an animator.
So if you like something, point it out and tell me why; If you dislike something, or something catches your eye, please let me know so i can fix it!
