I just watched this with my daughter and she said the word "dance" for the first time!

I didn't even say the word for her to repeat it. You're my new Sesame Street!

Elliot Cowan said...

Here's a longer version for her then!

Elliot Cowan said...

Cheers mate.

Kevin Mcleod said...

That was great. Did you just animate one dancer then mutiply for the sceen? What 2d software did you use for the camera moves?

Oh and thats for the comments over at drawing board about my blog banner. I'll spend some time on it to see if I can get it looking better.


Elliot Cowan said...

Yes - there's only the one feller repeated over and over.

The whole thing was done in After Effects - camera move and the animation.

Not sure if I was any help to you but I'm pleased you enjoyed the animation.

Dear Cowan

You are cool and I love your animations with Boxhead and Roundhead. You have a great gift and you should be very famous, which I hope You will be. Or maybe You are famous already and I don't know it. It is great they showed your animations in Bosnia and Herzegowina, though they didn't evet tell you about it. Look at it from the positive side: Boxhead and Roundhead have seen some part of the world and traveled a bit thanks to it. They had holidays in Bosnia. I also do illustrations and animations. You can see them if you want to, you can even download by comics desktop if you want to. But you don;t have to. What I love about your animations is that they are very simply made one one hand, but even though you animate an object once and then multiply in in the film, each character seems to be very individual. The dancing guys are terrific. You also have a great gift for making the film very exciting by simultaneously showing the things which Boxhead and then Roundhead see or experience. They are not seeing the same things though they take part in one adventure. I like this dark humor and the fact that the stories sometimes have kind of unspecified ending. It is charming and funny in many ways. I wish You lots of luck in life.

comics desktops are here

illustrations are here

animations are here

But you don't have to look them up. I will feel shy. There are also some cartoons further on.

Have a great time.

Goodness me Aga - that's quite a comment.
I thank you very much for taking the time to do so and I'm very pleased you enjoyed B&R.
I've had a look at your stuff and there's plenty there to enjoy.
Stay in touch!

Cheers Richard - very nice of you to say so.
Stay well and let me know if you're ever in the Big Apple.
