Arctic light film festival 2017 is here and and it’s time for another opener.
This year I started by making an animated film but changed my mind halfway through when I discovered that the animation didn’t really work the way I intended and the poster I made from that animation was not going to work out well in print.
Instead, I collected my thoughts and all the leftover foam I could find in the studio and built a hand puppet version of last years character. A few plaids from Rusta and a striped shirt later, the puppet was as good as done.
The backgrounds in the film are reused sets from Who can love Pikku Iso?, a short film I was working on at the same time.
Effects like the puppets breath and some other stuff were animated in Light Wave 3D and After Effects and finally, I put it all together in After Effects.
The film was shown before every screening at Folkets Hus (and the church) during the festival and you could also see it on the outdoor screens downtown during the festival.
