Smokey Town is a short film I created and directed with the contribution of a bunch of amazing friends.
It's fully 2D animated film with puppet rigs . You can watch the trailer above.
I created and painted all of the environments and characters on the project and did animate the backgrounds.
Smokey Town is a small town were strange things happen. A light thief plan to put the city into darkness by stealing the light of all the inhabitants.
Meet Eagle , the detective who tries to understand his motivation and solve the case.
The rigs were made by Daniela Fischer.
Thanks to stretch and other tricks , it was possible to turn the heads and make it look like 3D.
