Hey yo crabzooz !
Here it is our second short for our Master (5th year graduation) at ECV Animation school co-produced with Antoine Dhondt. Gautier Abadie made BO and sound design !
ENG: Two hermit crabs goes to fight each other to seduce a female hermit crab ! Each one try to have bigger and sexier shell to win the competition and reach the heart of their beloved!
FR: Deux Bernards l’hermite entrent en conflit pour séduire une femelle et cherchent chacun leur tour de nouvelles coquilles toujours plus grandes et toujours plus belles pour gagner la compétition, et ainsi atteindre le cœur de leur dulcinée.
Here is the research I made (with Antoine’s help) ! I mainly worked on expressions, posing and environment, render .
We tried to represent typically how two hermits crabs want to seduce a female with a big dose of self-mockery and fun !
We worked like a ping pong game : One of us found an idea and the other took it to upgrade in a funny way! I have mostly done all the graphic part, layout and fx, Antoine made a very great part for intervalling the characters animation.
