This project is a not-so-distant cousin of gnctrkcll / cornetto project, and was produced over the weekend break between the two parts of its bigger relative. The main concept remained the same – a stop-motion actor, t-shirt with a character, busy background.

The character was, again, designed by Meni, but this time we were delivered ready frames from the agency and did not have much input on what it does. Instead I focused on creating a small library of cell-shaded 3D elements, later used to liven up the scene.

A quick explanation about what are these three clips all about: In Turkey films in the cinema are always split into two parts, with a 10 minute intermission inserted in the middle of the movie. The three animations below are played before the start of the film as well as in the beginning and the end of the intermission.

As stated earlier, this project is much simpler than the other ones, but for two days of production – I think we did well :)
