This was the second animation we did for Nancy Beiman's "Acting for Animators" workshop. This time around we were assigned to animate objects and give them a personality in precisely 112 frames. The story for this one changed a lot through the course of working on it. I started of with a candle, a wineglass and an inanimate stick. The final version is a little different. It was a challenge to convey emotion without facial features (although they were allowed), but it was fun to see the objects come to life. I had to work with four levels and a background, so I'm sorry that the video is a bit dark. Hope you like it!
