The Woods! Animation Test

Hey folks. For the past 2 years, I have been developing a stop motion cartoon show. I was recently informed that they don't want to go through with making it into a show. It's a bummer, because so much of my time, energy and brain power have gone into this project the past few years. But hey, this stuff happens all the time with projects in development.

But the cool news is, that while developing this project, I got to spend time developing characters, settings, storyboards, etc. AND I got to make this minute - long animation test! This was sort of a "proof of concept" type - thing. Because stop motion shows aren't made often, they wanted to see if cartoon characters could successfully be realized in stop motion. This test wasn't a failure, they actually really liked it, and it wasn't the reason for the ultimate demise of my show. Anyways, now it's on "the net" for all to enjoy, so... here you go!

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it. Ana, from what I see on your blog, your stopmotion stuff is looking nice! I did the mouths in-camera.
