So. Jetzt aber weiter.
Hier folgen jetzt Drei weitere Kleine Filmchen von Tandem.
Mr. Shortfuse visits the post office. Mr. Shortfuse is easily angered and very impatient…
This short film was made in 2000 by Tandem director Daniel Greaves. Hand-drawn animation was scanned and coloured using Toonz software. Mr. Shortfuse later appeared as a character in Daniel Greaves’ BAFTA-nominated shortfilm ‘Little Things’ released in 2004.
A rabbit unwittingly duplicates itself through a number of invisible trapdoors.
Daniel Greaves animated the whole film as a single character hopping around the screen, the animation was then artworked onto cell using a waterbased ink. The very simple action becomes a complex kaleidoscope pattern, which is the result of complicated repegging and repositioning of each of the original drawings traced off many times for each frame as the rabbits multiply.
Chris Gavin’s experimental stop-motion film. Painstakingly hand-crafted using hundreds of plastic peg-board letters.
The films follows the endeavours of a squad of letters, as they delve deep into the jungle of a mysterious island. What is their mission? And will they succeed?
