-Thanks for the reviews
- I ended up getting a B for this. To be honest my preliminary sketchbook was awful though.
school art project 2007-2008, and my last, hope you enjoy it.

topic was 'modern design & animation', decided to do a mock interview style short cartoon about the nature of art (although the interviews are spontaneous and unrehearsed). I thought the best way to get funny/watchable answers at short notice would be to probe into the minds of 11 year old kids.

my target was to create expressive character designs and accompany them with equally emotive body language and movement. my main focus in this was to make something that - aesthetically - looked completely different than anything i had done before, hence my first time using live-action as a primary medium. i rented a HD video camera for that but unfortunately only a standard tape so it came out averagey and i wasted money... oh well.

please enjoy!


Awesome and new.

Ha ha, I like drawring, awesome style and concept.

great movie!!

that was an amazing movie. btw the difference between HD Camera and a regular camera is that u pay ,more for an extra 2 letters. off the charts animation though

Excellent animation.

Very enjoyable to watch, keep up the great work. The animation was very smooth.
10/10, 5/5.



I enjoyed the commentary... i always wondered why you werent coloring them in but i never bothered to ask.. now it all makes sense.

I think its an awesome project. Maybe I'm biased, but still I think your characters are believable and all have their own personality. You are a great observer and sponge of human mannerisms. Its one thing to be able to animate its another to be a great interpreter of human life and its nuances. I think my favorite character is the cocky kid in the Acme bit. he doesnt really make sense but to him he makes perfect sense in his responses.

The typography is also great. I would hang you by your balls if it wasnt. :)
