The Slipper Cycle

On Friday night I ended up at a dinner in the house where I made The Slipper Cycle, so it sure brought back some memories. I spent a year making the film while I worked nights as a waiter, so I had the whole set sitting at the bottom of my bed for all that time.

The film is still getting around - it showed in a programme of African animation at Stuttgart a couple weeks ago and will show at Anima Mundi next month as well. I watched it again - and boy it's rough. But as my first film I'm still proud of the accomplishment.

I was originally going to call it "Through Hell and High Waters" to try and link it to the theme of marriage, but I'm kinda glad I didn't.

Because I didn't study animation, I used the project as way to learn the whole process...

...from storyboard to final film.
I used one of the earliest canon digital cameras to shoot it and my bedside light to light it. Like I said, rough.

Shaun the Sheep was a useful reference.
