Herbert's Hijinks



So when I finished this on Thursday night, I realized that this is longer than my film needs to be next year! And I did this in a couple days. Yeesh.

Well, this idear was a collaboration between Tams and I - it's funny what comes to you when you are relaxing in a coffee shop! :) This is a short animation purely based on musical cues. No other audio. It was great fun to envision what each musical cue might do for the story beats.

I love this piece by Saint-Saens, entitled "Pianistes" [from the Carnival of Animals suite] - and to me, it sounded like it would be about a bird named Herbert.
Enjoy!

I love the shape of your bird and he has fabulous expressions.

Love the photo-like anvil in contrast and how birdie stretches out to lift it.

You amaze me all of the time.
