Video piece number 49. Made for the Vimeo Weekend Project "Pet Portrait" in 2013 instead of doing the housework in Inverness. For non commercial purposes only. After I made Waiting ( vimeo.com/m/55645079 ) late last year, I was eager to try this simple method of stick man animation again. I was really pleased with how Waiting ( vimeo.com/m/55645079 ) turned out and consider it to be one of my best short films. I wanted to enter this challenge but currently having no Pets meant that I couldn't make a conventional Pet Portrait. So I decided to quickly attempt something in the stick man style again. I drew everything in Adobe Photoshop, then imported all the separate layers into Adobe Aftereffects. I then dynamic linked into Adobe Premiere to finish it off. The whole process took about 4 hours (while watching Dr Who.) The music is from The Nine Inch Nails "Ghosts I-IV" album and this film is part of my ongoing project to make a short film for each of the 36 tracks on the album.
