This animation makes me wish I were a fulltime student again…

Here’s a great short animation from David Forest, who spent 8 months on pre-production and about 3 months on the actual production and post-production. What a schedule… You, college kids don’t think you have a lot of free time, but oh, you do!

David got a lot right here in his final graduation project…

  • Time: Around a minute, which is perfect. He didn’t go overboard on unnecessary shots which is easy to do when you build an elaborate 3D environment.
  • Story: He got his character into a mess, and out of one in style.
  • FX: the 3d is gorgeous.

Good work!

    In addition to the breathtaking art and sound, the timing is perfect. It starts out slow and builds up to an exhilarating finish. All in a minute. Beautiful!

  2. Yeah, well, I remember in college there were a lot of kids that spent 6 out of 9 months their senior year doing “pre-production” which just meant smoking one less blunt each week to think about their final project and maybe draw one storyboard.
