  2. I've been wanting to post a work in progress video of some of my shots from Frozen. This is the first one I wanted to post and it shows the process that I go through on a shot like this. I use 2d animated rough tests a lot in my workflow , specially for a broad cartoony shot like this one. I wanted also to show how the 2d sketch translates into the CG character , and the fact that I don't copy 100% the 2d into the CG , I just use it as a reference and starting point. Later, I hide it and concentrate on polishing and refining the CG animation.
    I would like to credit the talented people responsible for making this shot look the way it does in the final movie:

    Voice acting of Kristoff: Jonathan Groff
    Story Boards: Fawn Veerasunthorn
    Animation supervisor : Lino Disalvo
    Directors: Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee
    Sven's rig: David Suroviec
    Kristoff's rig: Nicklas Puetz
    Tech Anim :Corey Bolwyn
    FX: Mike Navarro
    Lighting: Benjamin Huang
    Music Score: Christophe Beck

    And of course, I want to thank the amazing Mitja Rabar for his role as Sven during the live action reference !!

    I hope you enjoy it!

    A Short Non-Commercial Movie by Pixelhunters

    Life is a battle of choices and roads to be taken. We choose our own paths, we mark our own map. Once choices have been made, actions play out. Consequences are delivered. And in the end, we live with those consequences.
    But, the real struggle is making the choice to change how we take the roads untaken. Are we tough enough to decide for ourselves when the time comes?

    Idea: Eric MacInnes, Iliya Atanasov

    Given to us billions of years ago.

    Breathing, making choices, cultivating purpose.

    we marvel with the reasons our core existence.

    Predominance, obsession and what's only left is its lethal outcome around.

    I was given life,

    what have I done ?

    Memories occurred to me like a flood,

    ravishing into the deepest turmoil of my thoughts.

    I used to see myself as an aggressive bullet wandering -

    tearing down races, razing enemies.

    The recollection of my belligerence. Will it change?

    Now all my senses could perceive is emptiness.

    couldn't have I stopped at the right moment,

    when few hearts were still beating?

    Is there still something worth opening my eyes for?

    Yet, here I am, facing again that demon inside me.

    another battle to win

    The monster in me respires with prudence. My inner self astounded.

    and then, for a heart beat

    I know what to do with it.
