This works with inbuilt codecs, so doesn't require your computer to have anything else installed on it.
Here we have it, finally!
The plot is an extract from 'Rolighed', a story by
that we're both working on pitching to Tokyopop as a full length manga. This is a trailer of sorts for it ^_^ I'm trying to get this seen as widly as possible, so please, download it, show your friends, show your proffessional contacts, anything is a big help! If anyone wants to make a feature of it on thier website or blog, that would be fantastic as well, I just want to try and get as many people as possible to see it! ^_^
(*note, the story and concept is still at the pitching stage which means Tokyopop haven't said anything definite about wanting or not wanting it...)
Animation hand drawn in pencil coloured in Photoshop.
Backgrounds in Maya, with hand drawn textures, no lighting effects, and Toon lines for some sections.
Compositing and special effects in After Effects (the god of all programs).
EDIT: Unfortunately, the manga that I was working on, that this animation was a sort of 'trailer' for, didn't get accepted. We put so much effort into the project, and so many things went wrong that we've decided to put it on the shelf for the moment. Maybe we'll dig it out in a few years once we've gained some perspective, but for now we're working on a new project entitled 'deck'
Just thought I'd add this edit in case anyone was curious, since a few people have asked.
