The story of a young man in NYC discovering a new world while he is sleepwalking.
I was inspired by several 3D and 2D animations but LightningLarry which is my classmates’ thesis film was the biggest inspiration because I was working with them 24 hours for several months. Both films try to achieve a goal to stylize to look ultimately look like 2D Animation.
I modeled and brush stoke painting textured the main character, buildings, few props in 3D. Since I love illustration and painting, I decided to paint all background instead of making props in 3D.
The short 3D Animation ‘Charlie Hustle’ is a current project that I’m working on. It’s a similar stylized 2D look animation, but totally different story.
Which animated film would you like to have made?
Salesman Pete is one of my favorite animated films! I wish I could make that funny, creative and 2D stylized animation with talented friends in the future. Also, I will try to make funny films so that I can give laugh to people!
