I made this animation for GreeNoodle, a moroheiya noodle company that is really easy to advertise. I’ve tried the noodles and they taste as good or better than regular ramen noodles, and they are much much healthier. I’ve become very selective with who I make videos for, I’ll only work freelance if I really believe in the product or service.
Here is their website:
And you can buy the noodles here (only ships to the contiguous 48 states of America):
The idea for this animation actually came while making Animator vs. Animation IV. Part of the plot for the animation was a scene involving YouTube, but the concept proved to be too big and needed to be given its own whole video instead of squeezing it into the already long plot of Animator vs Animation IV.
Making this video required me to ask permission from all the YouTubers whose videos I used. Many of them were really hard to reach, namely PewDiePie and the author of Charlie Bit Me. But I can safely say that all of these videos either were used with permission or were free to use under a Creative Commons license.
After 6 months and with the help of 50 people, the world of “My Neighbor Totoro” in Minecraft is finished. I made a cinematic trailer to showcase the map. You can also see the imgur album I made to highlight the comparison between our project and the movie itself.
What’s next? I plan to continue working on my next animation as well as move on to recreating Howl’s Moving Castle.
