This is an animated short I made in a two-week project phase during our studies in a team with two of my fellow students. It is an experimental film, mixing together a real crafted paper world and 3D animation.
After we developed the idea and story together I was mainly responsible for the character animation and the production of the film. This was a very interesting & instructive project for us, as we had never worked on an animated film before nor did character animation. This, together with the limited timeframe, led to a very intense (but also very fun) time working on the film.
