As usual, I’m late putting this on my web site. This is the 2012 Encounters trailer.
Okay, so I’m a bit late posting this. We actually created it a few months ago.
The festival organisers wanted to make more of a distinction between the two sides of the festival, short films and animated shorts. I’d already wanted to add some colour to the ‘Cinemen’ so this gave the perfect opportunity. I also wanted to have something with a bit more energy. What better way than to have the two characters running and jumping Parkour stylee. Oh yes it’s what all the kids are doing now days. So I’m told.
Anyway, here it is. Thanks to Jane Davies, Chris Bowles and Kirsten Thacker for the wonderful animation, plus James T Lundie for the great music.
This is a quick and rough concept image for this year’s Encounters Festival trailer. No promises that it will actually look anything like this.
