This is the finished version of my second-year animation project I've done as student at Lucerne university of applied sciences and arts (Department for Animation) in Switzerland.
As a result of a cooperation between our school and Cartoon Network Germany we had to create short animations that can be used as program fillers/ident. It will be aired this summer on Cartoon Network Germany. We had the option to create own characters or adapt some from the CN Universe and come up with a small story that is about sports and not longer than 20 seconds.
The goal was to learn the creation of an animated film from A-Z that includes.
- Collecting ideas for the story
- Draw a storyboard
- Create an animatic (tests for animation/sound timing)
- Make a layout
- Character design
- Animation tests
- Animation cleanup
- Sound (recording and editing)
I'm pretty content with the result and I've learned a lot about the different steps in a production.
I had the right to use all characters/sounds appearing in this film. The copyright for the characters (Dexter, Bloo, Buttercup) goes to Cartoon Network.
The logo animation at the end was NOT created by me and is © Cartoon Network too.
