“Duck on the Run” by Nicole Stafford

This is my contribution to 48 hour films 2013! I painted the background with acrylics and then did the animation in Flash and camera moves in After Effects. The music is “Mubyo” by Shugo Tokumaru.

    Love everything about it!

    That’s one speedy animator. I think Ub Iwerks would be proud. :-)

    how much was done in 48 hours? aftereffects work and everything? was there prep work? just curious. no matter how long it took it’s awesome. i’d love to see what you can make in 96 hours.

      The theme for 48 hour films at CalArts is chosen at midnight on a Fridaynight/Saturdaymorning (“duck” for this year) so it’s relatively impossible to prep for these projects! It is super fun however to not sleep and go crazy and see what you can get done in the time constraint. all the work was done that weekend and turned in shortly after midnight on monday morning! :) thanks for the positive feedback!
