What is the film about?

Micro-short animated to audio from The Opie & Anthony Show. Jim Norton doesn’t have his own animated series, but wouldn’t the world be a wonderful place if he did?

What influenced it?

John Kricfalusi, Bob Clampett, Chuck Jones, Bill Plympton

A little background information...

I put this together in January 2011 as an experiment to both try out animating on ones and as a tribute to O&A, who I frequently listen to while working.

How was the film made?

Hand-drawn character animation, cleaned-up and coloured in Photoshop, composited in After Effects. Background were digitally painted in Photoshop.
