It’s finally here! My four weeks of hard work come to a close and I present a new film, Ego.
After the success of The Consequence ( [link]
) I thought I’d make one more shadow film to gauge my progress over the past year. I think this film is a drastic improvement, with better storytelling, timing, art, and a lot more time invested in the small details.
This film is composed of live-action shadow puppetry, digitally painted backgrounds, frame-by-frame animation with watercolor, and some digital assistance where handmade wouldn’t suffice.
The music is done by Julian Beutel ( [link]
The cinematography was done by Maxwell Nisus ( *mixdown
All art, editing, and story elements were created by me, Victoria Van Patten.
This was a big accomplishment to get done in a month, but I did it, and I think it turned out well all things considered. I hope everyone likes it.
