A Recipe for Bad Dreams

Share Collapse

An old chef heads to the usual marketplace to buy ingredients for the special of the day but runs into some trouble. I hope his cooking doesn't give you nightmares...


omg I can't believe I finished this on time. What started as a simple idea by me and VickiChomps kept growing into my most ambitious animation yet. Funny how you go big when there's a time limit... Some additional scenes had to be cut due to time restraints, but I'm pretty happy with what I ended up submitting. I also wanted sound fx, especially for the fight sequence, but ran out of time. o well... Regardless, I'll probably keep working on this in my spare time to polish it up. It was really fun!

Big thanks to Bosa for writing a score for part of this animation. Couldn't have done it without you!


tl;dr: making this was a nightmare


Update: Thanks for 1st place in the first round of the summer jams everyone! As for participating in the rest of the jams, I just landed a new job, so I might be down for the count for the rest of summer... Maybe... I also reuploaded a newer, more complete version of this movie. Enjoy!
