I made a film on CELS. That’s right, animation cels.
It’s 15 seconds long. That might seem like a short amount of time, but the amount of work that took place to create this film is extreme. I recommend anyone interested in animation to do this at least once, to experience a bit of history.
It took about 36 hours to paint the hundreds of cels, not including the actual animation, inking, and filming.
I did the backgrounds digitally. I’ve attached examples of some backgrounds for the film.
I’m going to post the short film on my website soon - so keep posted to www.samgrinberg.com if you want to see a traditional hand-drawn animated short film!
