Sheep Days

This is my fourth year film as a CalArts Character Animation student. The film is about the troubled life of a hand sewn sheep.
I was inspired by the dog embroidery animation of Aubrey-Long Cook. First, I animated on paper then traced the image on to fabric. I embroidered each frame on green fabric to be keyed out later. The footage was shot with Dragon on an Oxberry. Then, I composited the fabric backgrounds with the animation using After Effects.
I hope you enjoy the film. It was a lot of fun to make.

I'll post making of pictures soon.
