The Future is Robotic!

So for this animation jam I had to convert a real life robot into a 1930s style. I picked the Boston Dynamics Spot Mini. It's a cute little block dog, what's not to love? I tried to emulate some of the things I observed in 1930s cartoons, like the lack of real shading. Me working in colour made this stick out a bit more, but hot dog, did it make everything quicker. I also kind of kept some of the roughness to show off this bygone era of animation. I would, as usual add more things with time and probably re-record some lines, but I think it came out okay.

I quite enjoyed the story and especially the character designs. Plus Dennis is just a total charmer.
