Inspired by the brilliant words of Malcolm Gladwell in "David & Goliath," this short piece was created not just as a passion project for schoolofmotion.com, but also as an experiment.
I wanted to see if it was possible to create a unique type of learning experience for aspiring Motion Designers and filmmakers by documenting the entire process of making this short film. The resulting learning-series comprises 10 Episodes and nearly 11 hours of behind-the-scenes material covering everything from coming up with the initial concept, to editing, to 3D modeling and animation, to choosing and recording VO talent... it's quite possibly the most comprehensive learning series of this nature on the internet.
And it's 100% free at schoolofmotion.com/giants
We've included, for free download, nearly every single project file, asset, audio element, and final visuals used in the making of this piece.
The message of this film, and of the behind-the-scenes series is that one person with enough ambition, resourcefulness, and knowledge can create just about anything they can dream up. I truly hope you enjoy it, and I hope you learn something.
Thanks for watching!
