So about a month ago, Nicki Yee, Ryan Ramirez, Youri Dekker, Grace Lacuesta, and I entered into the national "24-Hour Animation Competition" put on by Aubry Mintz (Animation professor @ Cal State Long Beach). We had exactly 24 Hours to conceptualize and produce a 30 second animation using the topic we were given: "What would you do if you only had 24 hours left to live?"...
Team YERDL TURTLES produced: "The Caveman's Capsule" and won 2nd place!
A huge victory not only for us, but for SJSU/Shrunkenheadman as well! Very proud of my team and an absolutely incredible experience where you truly create something out of nothing. We literally worked the whole night through and tried to get the story just right, as well as give the film an appealing look.
Every member truly played their part and more, which made the process easier. I helped mostly with story and character design, but also did clean-up and some extra animation. Here are the final character designs I did for our "Caveman" and the final film. Enjoy and great job Team!!!
