Plankton Invasion is a mini-animated series that will be broadcasted on the internet. Free to watch and with a special ingredient.
Last week we released a teaser that I invite you to watch: www.planktoninvasion.com (http://www.planktoninvasion.com/).
The next teaser will be online within 2 weeks .. hopefully :)

Wow this looks like a load of fun!

What I want to know is how was this funded?
How did you get this idea?
How did you get this all started?

How did you go from the idea to actually getting it animated?
Are you working on no budget, collab or is this funded by a big company?
How many in this series?
How often released?

With pleasure .. I'll keep it short though, where stil in the teasing fase eh :)

What I want to know is how was this funded?

For now this is a sort of after hours project, .. no funds.
( perhaps sell a T-shirt or two one day :)

How did you get this idea?

We wanted to do something 4 the gobalwarming warning :) the only way we know how ... the silly way

How did you get this all started?

I grew up nearby the sea :-) and my dad's a fisherman

How did you go from the idea to actually getting it animated?

step by step .. teaser 2 whas made in 8 weeks ( after-hours - 1 guy )
( teaser 1 .. 1 day- 1 guy )

Are you working on no budget, collab or is this funded by a big company?

daytime jobs support the nighttime eh :) Something like that anyway...

How many in this series?
I can say now that it will not be the traditional recepy for a series .. as mentioned it will have a interactive ingredient. More news when the website onlines ..

How often released?

monthly

software:
Animated with messiahstudio (love the speed of this software), rendered with Fprime (speedy also :-))
Modeling in Lightwave and painted in zbrush
Backgrounds are photographs made at Oostduikerke beach .. (Belgium)


glad you all like it, nice to hear that.

Thx,
Joeri

I had to mute the trailer on the first viewing because I was in class. However, I still laughed my ass off. Then I heard the audio track and now, I am very excited for the release date.

Looks great! Very funny!!

KASK Ghent, tradditional animation but left after 2 years.
Also went to KTA brugge before KASK :)

Wow how long did it take to render out Teaser2 witht the dual between the dude with the matches and the crab.

Rendered 4 a few days with Fprime in Lightwave.


Within a few weeks we will launch the complete websiteof plankton invasion ( working hard on it as we speak) It is an independed production of a series that will be broadcasted freely on the internet. Each month we intend to release a new episode, during each max 3 minutes. There will also be a extra conceptual ingredient of interactivity to it. Hopefully we will see you all then.
thx,
Joeri
