Freeview – Set Yourself Free

Directed by The Line Collective members Bjorn-Erik Aschim and Sam Taylor, I had the honour to join this super cool project at Electric Theatre animating great characters along others great animators.
We spent 4 months building up the 2 minutes short film animation, trying to capture the warm, organic and charming stop-frame effect.

This effect has been quite interesting to work on, firstly animating on a classic pose-to-pose process (just for a matter of efficiency) we then baked the approved result to pick and rework the desired frames we wanted to keep in the final footage. Some actions also went though some extra animation, first roughly animated in traditional drawing animation to then be adjusted in our 3D scenes or simply animated on a Straight-Ahead key-framing.
Great fun!
