1. Trix of the Trade

Trix of the Trade

Maddie Dennis and I created this film starring Trixi, the official mascot of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, over the course of 2 days as part of the festival's Crazy Horse 48 Hour Animation Jam. Maddie spearheaded the backgrounds, coloring, horse crowd animation, and sound design, while I worked on the storyboarding, character animation on Trixi, and editing. We forgot to bring a Wacom tablet and so resorted to hand-drawing every frame by taping sheets of paper to the computer screen and using it as a lightbox. It was an improvisational adventure and very inspiring to work beside the other talented teams at the Jugendhaus Mitte studio. Many thanks to the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and to our fellow international competitors for this experience.
