Backwater Gospel - Making Of

So, when the Animation Workshop showed up on the scene last month this was the other notible short. Dark atmosphere.

ran across this making of it later. What's interesting to me is the way Bo Mathorne builds the characters (jump in to 1 min in) Flat projections bent into shape, and the mouth is just cut outs.

interesting to me because the new paradigm means letting go of trying to do the Pixar, Dreamworks, Bluesky render every grass look. Keith called it, the more you can simplify the less the eye worries about it, add a little noise and you can get by with so little.

Wow, Gruesome but astonishingly well made! Something Egon Shiele about the characters and their design is so satisfying, for the mood of the story. I like how the shots are like looking through half closed eyes....phew...the colours in the preaching scene blew me away! So Much more to rave about, so good!It IS gripping!
