This film was completed before I started work on Tarboy, and I figured it was about time I packaged and released it. It was my third year animation project in college and the first larger scale short film I completed. It was also the first project completed that Hania and I collaborated on.

The production of this was an absolute nightmare to say the least. Working on this project was the reason I decided to do Tarboy completely in Flash.

My overall pipeline for animation looked something like this: 1.Draw images on paper. 2. Scan into Photoshop for digital paint. 3. Bring into morphing software for head turns 4. Export into Flash for character animation. 5. Export into After Effects for compositing. 6. Export into Premier for Editing.
I'm thinking this will receive a mixed response, but at this stage I'm glad it's finally out.

Hope you enjoy it, check out the bonus features if you want to learn more about my messy pre-production process.

I see....

This is extremely well put if you understand it (It took me minimal thought actually)
But I realy like the way you animate. Adds hand drawn with 3D sorta. I realy hope to see more work like this from you good job.

Very good!

Noir'ish graphics were good, music was very good, plot was...hard to decipher. Call me a dick, but I counted off 1 point for the film auto-starting with music. I open like 15 different flashes at a time on NG to let them all load. I like to start watching the first that finishes loading, but inevitable there's one or more in the background that auto-start playing or playing sounds. I find that very annoying. Not trying to take that out on you, so I apologize if it comes off that way.

Great animation-

Great music,but the plot seemed kinda foggy...maybe because of the lack of visible plot developement/depiction..i love how at times it seemed like professional 3d somewhat reminds me of 9...just the murky/dusty style mixed with symphonic audio...heheh...who knows?spielburg may pick it up and stretch it out for an hour and a half.
