This summer, I was commissioned for two animated videos to promote Gunvan Bharat’s registrations openings — one which I’m not really proud of (given the rushed deadline), and another which I really like how it turned out. This post is about the latter.
The brief for this one given to me was simple, frame-by-frame animation (aka, frames drawn by hand), with the style being nothing but clean lines.
Of course, there were aspects of the storyboard that couldn’t be quickly done by hand given the tight deadline, so I had to resort to cheating — using backface culling and motion tweens in 3D space — while still giving it the appearance of hand-drawn animation.
The tools used in this project were Krita (for frame-by-frame animation), Synfig and Blender (for everything else).
