Animator vs. Animation IV

Directly after graduating from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2013, I ran a successful campaign on Kickstarter to fund the making of Animator vs. Animation IV. I worked on this animation for a year, putting in 738.25 work hours, twice as many as number 3. In this episode, I did a few things differently. First, I included live action shots to show the reaction of the animator at his computer desk. I also included a scene where I fight with the stick figure on my iPhone. This required animating the iPhone’s screen and playing it as a video on the phone itself while reacting to it, with a piece of plastic stuck to my finger so as not to actually activate the touchscreen. I also recorded my own sound effects.

I did run out of funding money with a few months left, causing me to owe myself a couple thousand dollars. If you enjoyed it and would like to see more, I appreciate any donations through my donate page. Any donations will allow me to set aside time from doing client work and focus on making content for purely entertainment purposes.
