Pre-production is going on in earnest on Carol’s Frameworks funded film The Bird and the Whale!

Below you can see the paint on glass animation test we created for our pitch this summer:

This test clip was created using one of our small scale multiplane setups, with three sheets of glass: the animation of the whale and the splash occurring on the topmost layer, the sea on the the middle layer and the sky on the backmost layer. For the full scale production of the film, we shall be using our large format multiplanes, with multiple layers of animation happening at once.
