Came back several times to rewatch it.
Really like the char designs and setting. Storywise its a bit
confusing but very VERY fun nonetheless.

Any chance you guys could share some info about the characters?
For example Alternate Designs, rigging, anything basicly :]

They`re fun little guys thats for sure!

10 October 2007, 04:25 PM

Very great :buttrock:

10 October 2007, 09:23 AM
Fabulous animation, character behavior and character sounds (though I think their voices need more volume). Excellent character design.

The story and script are confusing. Slightly frustrating trying to figure out what was going on.

10 October 2007, 10:46 AM
hahahaha ... that's awesome and brilliant ... greet work guys ^_^

10 October 2007, 10:54 AM
thank you all for the front page and all your great comments ;)
This is the first episode of this project. At the start we decided to realize 3 full episodes to explain clearly the concept of the fallen eye. But we didin't have much time so you only realize the first episode...:(
This is a project ,we are trying to get money to produce it, but in France it's very difficult. So thank you again, we will continue to realize short film at the planktoon!

10 October 2007, 11:42 AM

PlanKtoon is a collective of artists based in Paris, we all work in cgsociety for many years. All
PlanKtoon projects as "Do penguins fly", "MagikCircus" or "Dootchi&Gotchi" are personal works. Every summer we stop working in 3dstudios and we realise our animations with our own personal computers...wherever we can and it's not easy :(
(Summer 2006 we have realized "Do penguins fly" and "MagikCirucs".)
The collective celebrates his first birthday this month :D
It took us one month to make the movie from the storyboard to the final cut. There were Two animators, Tree renderer for shading/texturing and lighting one matepainter one compositer, one music composer and one soundmixer.
At the same time we have realised another animation called "Roodoudou" with the same team, so we had a lot of work this summer. (I will post this new animation soon ;)
I will post tomorow a small making of too with all steps of production.

10 October 2007, 12:16 AM
Great character designs and animation style to match! :-) Lovely stuff !

10 October 2007, 01:16 AM
that matte paintings great, good stuff

10 October 2007, 01:29 AM
wow, great character design, simple, funny, flexible for aniamtion, i love it. Good luck with it.

10 October 2007, 03:43 AM

10 October 2007, 03:45 PM
Very nice animation ! Funny characters and amazing character design :thumbsup:

10 October 2007, 05:49 PM
Wow, this is absolutely fabulous! Incredibly funny! The idea is completely stupid, but executed so well that it makes me wonder what the use of good ideas is anyway. ;) Do you happen to have a download of it somewhere? I'd like to see it in higher quality than YouTube. :)

10 October 2007, 06:14 PM
sorry for the low quality of the youtube version :(
We will update this weekend our website, the movie will be online in flashmovie with a much better quality.

10 October 2007, 09:10 PM
its a shame you only have it on youtube. The colors of your animation are very vivid and deserve a better host and better quality. Maybe you can at least turn it into divx and put it on which has much better quality videos.

10 October 2007, 09:50 PM
Really nice job !!!

10 October 2007, 10:00 PM

This is s small making of ;)

10 October 2007, 08:14 PM
hey sunlimet thx for posting this, Maybe stupid question but anyway, I see that you have matte painted objects in your zdepth pass, how that works? did you model basic shape over painting to render zdepth?


10 October 2007, 08:21 PM
For the backgroung we used camera maping technique.
First we modelised a low 3d gabarit for all the objects of the background, then we paint a mate over this 3dmesh and finaly we project thi map trhough a camera. It saves us a lot of time because there are more process to work in 3d than in 2d.
We took the Low3d gabarit for the zdepth and masks.
All the background is painted no 3d at all.

10 October 2007, 10:15 PM
The Roodoudou are coming...(our next short)

10 October 2007, 03:50 AM
wow.......wait :eek:

I love everything about this animation! I love the environment, the simple yet awesome characters, and especially when the purple guy looses his eye. I can't get enough of these guys. You mentioned that this was a pilot to a series. Where can we see the rest of the series? Anyways, good work!
