an UNDERWATER TALE - STV

This animation forms the basis of the Christmas commercial for Ocean Terminal in Leith. The original advert is 20 seconds and has to fit in 16 store logos! In squeezing all this information into such a small amount of time some of the detail is lost. So this is a longer, non-commercial edit.
Of course the great Lotte Reiniger was the primary influence on style for this piece. With time and a budget it would have been great to attempt some of it using real shadow puppets.
Made in after effects with the animation of the characters done in Anime Studio Pro.
