HEAVY FUCKING BREATHING
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
I ask that no one removes the credit or source for this tutorial/guide please. thanks :)
And this is a keeper! No doubt about that! :)
I’m just gonna put this one on standby
for when I start my senior film!

Mini Chicken Pot Pie from A Spicy Perspective:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter, COLD
- 3+ tablespoons ice cold water
For the Pot Pie Recipe:
- 8 ounces chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
- 1-2 dashes cayenne pepper
- 3/4 teaspoon chicken base (or 1 bouillon cube)
- 3/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoon heavy cream
- 3/4 cup frozen peas and carrots mix
- Egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon water, whisked)
- Salt and Pepper
- For the pastry dough, place the flour, sugar and salt in the food processor and pulse a few times. Pour water over a cup of ice to chill. Then cut the cold butter into cubes and add to the flour. Pulse several times until the butter is cut into the size of peas. Add 3 tablespoons ice water (without the ice) and pulse again until the dough absorbs the flour and looks like soft pebbles.
- Flour a work surface and dump the crumbly dough out onto the surface. Press together into a flat square, then fold toward the center into a 3-section fold. Roll the dough down to 3/4 inch and fold again in the same manner. If the dough is not coming together, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of ice water over the top and keep folding. Fold and roll the dough 3-4 times, until it is smooth. Then fold into a rectangle, wrap in plastic and chill.
- Preheat the oven to 400o F and spray a muffin tin (or 4 – 6 ounce ramekins) with non-stick cooking spray. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter and onions. Sauté 2 minutes, then add the chicken pieces and garlic. Sauté another 2-3 minutes, then add the flour, herbs, and chicken base. Stir to coat. Pour in the water and cream, then stir well. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer to thicken, then add the frozen veggies. Taste for salt and pepper and add a couple of dashes of cayenne for a little kick. Remove from heat.
- Now take the pastry dough out of the fridge and roll out into a 12-inch circle/square. Cut it into 4 equal triangular pieces. Then fit each piece down into the prepared muffin tin. Spread them apart—they grow! Fill the pastry dough with chicken filling, spooning in the creamy base. Then loosely fold the flaps over the top. It’s okay if there are gaps in the top as long as the pastry dough sides come up high. Brush the egg wash over the top of the pastry dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes on the bottom rack, until golden brown. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
- To serve, run a butter knife around the inside edge of the muffin tins. Tip the knife down and carefully lift each pot pie out. If you accidentally poke a hole in the pot pie, serve it in a bowl.
