Finished the e-card for the client. I think it is some of my best work. With character designs, storyboarding, and some minor tweaks, this took me a week to do.
I forgot to add that I also chose the music and sfx.
Once the card was done, the client wanted it shortened to under a minute.
Shamus Culhane, an animator from Disney's golden days, used to say.." that if you have to cut, cut big."
So, while I loved the whole feel of the entire song, and the way the elves seemed to be actually thinking, it wasn't what the client wanted.
I cut time from the beginning and end of the song, and took out some of the business with the elves.
But here is a link to the long version.
