I stumbled across this a few days ago and thought it was an interesting animation technique. Which has made me rethink my character design. The characters have a lot of personality even though they are big blocks of black. However I’m more impressed with the background detail, and wish to explore this theme with my own backgrounds in my character animation.
Made 2004 I believe the company that made this film also made a few commericals for SBS in 2002 (I think). I believe I could use similar techniques for the backgrounds in my animation since I want the background to be dark and gothic in keeping with the horror theme. I will have to explore this further.
