Animation: The Magic Poodle III

The Magic Poodle III from Thomas Fummo on Vimeo.

The next weekend, the now completely brain-addled student, faced with presentations and essays, as well as the prospect of ending up living under a bridge, finally snaps and starts writing obscure arcane texts on how to boil cabbage in a way that actually makes small annoying children want to eat it. His work completed, he turns it into this final chapter in the Magic Poodle saga.

Special thank you to Melissa, who provided the voice for Obnoxiously Attractive Professor Waterbear.

Also, forgot to mention that recently one of my professors at Uni gave me the chance to write a brief article on my expereience researching and writing my Early and Silent Era Film project this year. If you follow this link and click on the top latest pdf, you can read it on page 3 :-)

Later that day, his headache passed, the disgruntled student consumed disproprtionate amounts of vegetarian pizzas in an attempt to kickstart a delicious pizza-fueled psychotropic episode. His eyes fell out of his head and he left the tap on. As a result, here is part two of Magic Poodle.

Animation: The Magic Poodle

The Magic Poodle from Thomas Fummo on Vimeo.

Once upon a time there was a young, discruntled Film and Philosophy student in Southampton with a headache. After reading Immanuel Kant's Second Analogy of Experience, he decided to make an animation about a poodle with telescopic legs and the rain forest or something. Because that's how amazing Immanuel Kant is.

It took me about three hours to make this. I don't know whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Yours, dazed and confused,

The new kid

There's another watercolour sky, as well as some new characters, the bat-face (Tilt) kid's loving parents.
In responce to your suggestion, Ashlyn, the squares of colour idea sounds good, I'll definitely adopt it for the next background.
I've also actually begun animating the little dickens there in the middle. Movement feels a tad too jerky so some fine-tuning is in order. Once I have a decent enough clip, I'll try and upload it here.
