Wildebeest by Bird Box Studio

my first thought is that: “Wow! f*cking funny & awesome 3d short!! :))”


wait! is it 3d?

Take a look at their making of:


please watch it in Bird Box Studio’s fb: Bird Box Studio’s Facebook page, I have trouble to embed fb video in my blog.

First of all the rough animatic was made in flash. This is the point we can test it’s funny and if it’s worth continuing.

The rough shapes are blocked into Flash and all the animation is done.

The flash animation is translated into AE, tracking the body and head movements from the SWF. Additional animation is copied frame by frame.

The different parts are built in AE. Many layers are used on the faces and manipulated to give a 3D effect to the heads turning.

They only used Flash and After Effects to create this short… Wao! This is a big lesson to me. You dont need to follow the “traditional” method or the path that ppl usually go, just keep the final target in mind, be creative and you will find your own way to go where you want to go.
