Canadian UN animations
This was my first stab at the spider and the fly. Chuck liked the movement of the figures but wanted to get a little funkier with the characters. A little more attitude.
Chuck sent me the animatics which were very cool, but what really surprised me about the finishes was the soundtrack. Apparently, the people of Tuva aren’t the only ones with a tradition of throat singing. The Inuit’s do also. The soundtrack was done by an Inuit woman who provided all the sounds on these two spots with her voice. This just blows me away.
Hopefully this is the start of a long and fruitful relationship. If we can just find some clients that can look beyond the slick computer generated stuff.

Putting my ol' Hunt 102 nib through the ringer, I tried to funkify the characters as well as simplify them. Some of these are very close to what was used in the finish.
Here's a Zebra and Lion page. Lion's trying out some hairstyles.
