Steve used to make his films exclusively in Flash, but now he is using After Effects more and more (usually just for camera and lighting effects). It's a beautiful piece, isn't it? He has a unique style... quirky and strangely personal.
Hi, young Mr Terry! Yes, I love how deceptively simple looking this is but how he "edits" his scenes, how he is economical yet succinct in his storytelling really impresses me. I like his sympathetic characters too. It's really great!It's an inspirational model in 2min story telling.
We should all get across to Southbank to watch Tropfest and see what, if any, the animated films are like.
I like the character design Steve chose for this. The faces are just two dot eyes under a pair of eyebrows. Reminds me of the lecture on character design, a few posts back , given by Marc Craste from Studio AKA about a simplified character, with just a pair of eyes, being so effectively expressive.
