As any of you who've seen the animatic for my final film this year know, the first 30-40 seconds is an advertisement for the "Fishing for the Future" program.
To avoid making the advert in stop motion I figured this would be a great opportunity to collaborate with 2D. My good friend and skilled 2D animator Jake Harvey (Link to blog here) is working on the advert as part of his showreel.
There is a lot more information on his blog but the overall idea is a black and white esc 1950's style advert with a modern twist. Drawn straight into flash to avoid extra work cleaning up hand drawn lines.
Anyway! this is how one of the backgrounds is looking at current, its all looking great!
