Showing Work at iDMAa

I presented the following animated short at iDMAa: Beyond Boundaries. The short is called Dolphins, Ducks & Beetles, and was inspired by a radio broadcast I heard on WNYC’s RadioLab.

I constructed the objects in the animation with ink, watercolor, and paper, and eventually got it into After Effects for the animation. The banjo and narration were done by me one very very early morning!

I’d love to get feedback on the piece!

    Nice work. The people had a definite Hertzfeldt feel to them, but the rest made it unique. I like the ambiance it creates, that somehow doesn’t get destroyed by angels playing kickball with people.

    Hi Kristian!

    I really like it, and the theory is as good as any I’ve heard. Hope you are well. Lauren

    Hi Kristian – Congratulations – a great tale & really well done, from someone who knows nothing!!! I thought it had just enough creep & mystery about it. An interesting theory……but believable. Love to Katherine. Shelly
