This is a story about a fireworks craftsman that travels around space. One day he moves to a new galaxy to perform his firework show, but there he faces a serious problem.
It is one of the films I worked on this year at CalArts, Character animation.Program.
The program used is Maya, Zbrush, V ray, and Photoshop. This time I tried another rendering style and art direction. I kinda aimed for a paper craft-ish look, and a stop motion feel for the animation.
