After several sessions of brainstorming we decided to base our short film on a character (who ended up being an anthropomorphic elephant) who was terrified of little mice and rats.
I participated as a character designer for the elephant and as an animator during production. I also sculpted the main character in clay for better reference, but you will have to wait for the last showreel of first year ;)
|First designs of the character when he still was |
an undefined Moomin-like creature.
|More sketches. The character begins to revert|
to its original elephant form.
|Character expression sheet based on the final model.|
And here is the film! I feel really proud and satisfied with it, hope you enjoy it! (Warning: this contains some stroboscopic effects that may cause epilepsy and very loud volume)
