This is an animation done by Emeline porter and Andy Etter for International Animation Film Festival and Annecy 2011 (Guest country USA), on their subject of "Animation, land of freedom ".

Obviously, animation comes in so many forms and has constantly evolved and we both through we needed to show off as many mediums as possible. We have traditional, digital, film and 3D. All forms give you the options to show off what you wish to express, but when it all comes together, the possibilities are endless, and an idea forms and grows. Quite literally in this case!

We are rather proud of this because we've pretty much managed to rumble this 5 minute animation together in about a month and a bit. From the very beginning of concepts and story ideas, all the way to this final product, using film, drawings, After effects, Adobe flash and 3D studio max. In this month alone we'd had computer problems, jobs and sick parents to deal with and yet we still managed to finish this project off since we felt that as long as we enjoyed doing it and had come so far, there was no point not to let this idea not come to light.

Characters (in order of appearance) -

The Judges (Hard-nosed executives in the TV industry, looking for new talent, where ever it lies.)

Idea (The Stage Hand. A conceptual being, not yet fully formed. Perhaps the process of animation can give him the character definition he needs to shine like a star.)

Jimmy Beans - (An old toon from the 1930s. A great dancer, but a little too quick for his own good.)

Squirella - (The Squirrel in Red. A multi-skilled character, having a range of looking cute, to alluring dances. However, her full spectrum of skills might not be appropriate for all audiences!)

Grilldor - (The Robot. He's fresh off the assembly line in the world of Animation, so he's still a little unsure of where his talents lie. He may look mean, but he's a big softy really.)
