How do you create an animated short from concept through completion?
The process has rarely been as extensively documented as in this making-of piece by filmmaker Sean Buckelew detailing the production of his latest short, Lovestreams, which premiered online as a stand-alone film earlier this week. (Lovestreams originally appeared online late last year as part of Late Night Work Club.)
Buckelew’s in-depth exploration of his process includes not only insights into his production pipeline, but also explores the general trials and tribulations of producing an independent animated short. He also includes production files from the short so other animators can see exactly how he constructed his scenes.
