Dance of the Seasons in 24 hours

This film was created by me and the other Beiman comandos: Brittney Lee, Jed Mitchel, Joe Daniels, Bill Robinson and Nathaniel Hubbell as well as our friend R.J. Pena. The film is part of a 24 hour animation challenge directed by Joe and Jed. What was actually done in the 24 hour time frame included the story concept, concept art, story boarding, character designs, color layouts and 95% of all animation. Compositing, digital inking of animation and a few last minute shots were done outside of the 24 hour time frame. This is the first time that Joe and Jed tried a traditional 2d animation for this 24 hour challenge. They have already directed two other 24 hour films done in 3d that can be seen on their websites. This is a great experience to be apart of. It challenges us to work efficiently and quickly, all the while feeding off of each other's creative energy. I'm really happy with the results. Let me know what you think.

So here is Dance of the Seasons

jeremy- thanks a lot. The six of us filmakers who worked on this in the 24 hours have spent a lot of time together and we have really learned to feed off of each others creative juices. Much credit goes to Joe and Jed (the directors) for keeping the tight timeline moving. And im sure they would credit the rest of us for making the animation and layouts happening. IF you have time check out their links as well. All of them are very talented
