Have a look at animations, animatics, showreel and experimental work on the Anamation Vimeo Channel.

 The Prayer

This will be a short 3D animation about the strength monastic prayer has on the lives of people living in the world. The spirit of it will try to be truthful to the Orthodox Christian faith most of Eastern Europe shares. The story follows a prayerful monk as he quietly retreats into his desert cave to pray as the world outside struggles with sin. The monk’s prayers are then shown to alleviate the world’s pain through the help of the Holy Spirit, Who connects all people in God’s love.

The animation will be in 3D and requires a small group of freelance artists to work on it via tasks. These tasks can run for 2-5 days. Each artist can choose one or more tasks to focus on every week.

The artists chosen are either early career professionals or benefactors who wish to contribute to our work. We would like to pay our freelancers for their efforts, hence we made this fundraiser: Go Fund Me for The Prayer

Thank you for any help you can give!

Hugsy Showing Off

The hard part is over, you’ve created a masterpiece. Now all you have to do is put your feet up, eat caramels and watch Netflix, right? Wrong! What are you doing? Now is the time for your art/science work to shine! It’s time to share it with the world. ‘But how miss?’ I hear you say in a nasal voice. ‘Can’t I just show a playblast of my clown car bumping into a giant fish balloon?’ No! Would you go to a job interview in your pyjamas? Unless you’re interviewing for sleepwalking (that would be a cool profession), you would go in your ‘I look good in this’ clothes. It’s time to do the same for your creations, they deserve it!

The Little Matryoshka

Description: Every Matryoshka has a song which reflects her personality. The little matryoshka wants to play, but her sisters have other plans. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you 🙂

Technical details: This stop motion animation was made using wooden matryoshka dolls. Photographs were taken with a Nikon D80 camera and cleaned up in Gimp. Movie Studio 14 was used to edit the footage.

Sound effects were recorded in Windows’ Voice Recorder, with a Fifine Plug & Play Home Studio Cardioid USB Condenser Microphone. Ukulele, flute and tambourine sounds were created for the characters.
