A little background information...

At the end of out first year of University, me and two friends wanted to make a short film. With time being short, we wanted to make something quick and fun.

For a few weeks, every Friday lunch time, we would sit in the local pub, trying to come up with ideas for a short film. We had fun just throwing ideas out at the table, so we decided to make a short film with our ideas coming to life on the table in front of us.

Eventually it was shortlisted for the established DepicT festival, which was an added bonus for our fun week of drinking and animating.

How was the film made?

We only had 1 week to storyboard, shoot and animate the whole thing and with such a short time time, we kept everything simple but fun.

@lewisheriz @skwigly That first time you see it move is such a buzz and then you add sound and it just enters a whole new stratosphere.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
