Background Check

I'm back from vacation, with some more stuff from the archives.

In 2003 I created a short animation called "Commuters", for the One Minute Video Festival, a local film fest. All the submitted videos had to be one minute long or less. This was both a challenge and a relief - a challenge to get some kind of story done within that running time, and a relief at the end of the project, because it took me a month just to put together 50+ seconds of footage.

The animation was done in Flash and Photoshop and then output to video. The sound effects were created using my handy Yamaha DJX keyboard, sadly gathering dust in the closet now.

The images below constitute a sort of "spoiler", so if you want to pop over to theplasticbox.com and watch the short first, go ahead. Otherwise, scroll on down.

Anyway, here is one of the backgrounds used, and a detail from it.
