This is my winning entry in to the `Animate Chapman` competition to coincide with the release of A Liar's Autobiography, the new animated 3d feature film documenting the life and times of the late Graham Chapman from the Monty Python team.
My animation is based on the original `Silly Vicar` sketch from the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV programme, the challenge was to put some visual literalism to the sound track of the late Graham Chapman performing this classic sketch.
I chose to use my skills in 3d motion design for this animation allowing for freedom of movement with the camera, lighting and depth-of-field etc, but parodying the quirky 2d cardboard cut-out look typified by Monty Python. I also added extra sound design and music to embellish the original dialogue recording.
I am delighted to say I am one of the 10 winners of this worldwide animation competition.
