This is the first movie that I made where I spent some time planning out how the storyboard would flow. The end result included pretty much everything that I intended to put in this movie plus some last minute ideas. Most notable is that the room itself was based on my own including the furniture and most of the little trinkets (books and the flashlight) around the room including the RC-Car.
The Mischievous Bears took about two years to make, and it took two solid weeks to render it, with a couple of the shots taking 30 hours or more. However, this movie does have it's share of flaws. The actual bear models, as well as the fur, behaves a little screwy in some shots. If I make any future movies with these characters, I will probably start from scratch on the bears' models. Overall, the animation looks pretty good, and the environment (the room) and the lighting turned out really good.
