Recently completed a short experimental animation for an Annecy/Youtube animation competition:
The theme was 'Animation, Land of Freedom' with a reference to the USA.
The animation was crafted in about two months during my spare time after work hors, and a simple visual / animation experimental style was the direction chosen to embrace the time and technical constraints...
Some technical info:
modeled and animated in 3ds max
additional bits and pieces of animation in Flash
editing, color correction and effects in After Effects
sound editing in Sound Booth
