An animated video done for the band Jonah Blacksmith, on their song "Entangled Strings".
This animation was done within 5 days, at a workshop held by Anim'est festival, with two trainers from Tumblehead Studio (Denmark): Peter Smith and Magnus Møller. Peter and Magnus are friends with the guys from Jonah and they gave us permission to use their song.


I worked on concept art, character design, backgrounds and character animation, along with 5 other students.
We listened to the song first, while writing down words the crossed our minds on sticky notes. Then we put all the notes on a wall and made a story out of them. We noticed that the words "cowboy" and "underwater" were next to each other so we thought, "hey, our character should be an underwater cowboy!" :D

The story is pretty simple: a dying cowboy is lying in the desert, when a huge bird comes from the sky and flies through him. When he wakes up, he's wearing a bird-skull mask and is underwater. He begins his journey, and after a while he reaches a mountain made of bird skulls. He climbs it and when he gets to the top, he takes his mask off and his soul departs, leaving the skull behind- another addition to the mountain.

if you're interested you can watch my animation show reel for 2012 here: [link]
I've learned so much this past year, animation-wise and not only!

Hope you like it!

Wooow~ this is just great!
I love the character, and the song is so relaxing.
I have one question. What program did you use to make this?

Dragonframe*, ooops

Thank you so much!
We shot the character on a green sheet of paper (using Dragondrame for stop-motion, it's very easy to use), and then used Chroma Key in After Effects to add our bg-s... hope that helped! :aww:
