I've added some music for the mood.
And yeah, there's an ending. It's like ending is a new begining, or something like that :)
I'm pretty bad at writing descriptions as you can see.
Prepare yourself :)
Final version of the Jelly Babies. It was pretty tricky to animate some parts of the text where there was no action, no characters for example. Hope it worked well.
If you notice I missed resources, please, let me know.
2 Years ago on this day I joined hitRecord, and for everything I've learned I am thankful to each and everyone on the site. Very very much possible I wouldn't be able to create things I create today without this wonderful place.
* I've started workig on this animation before I knew the text for this illustration, so I guess, this is more an "adaptation" of image, how I visualize it.

This is the version that was screened at Sundance 2012!
CALLING ALL ILLUSTRATORS!
We're going to make an Animated Musical Short Film based on ppeppina's song "Mademoiselle Noir," which is a darker re-telling of the classic fairytale of Rapunzel. This new version actually falls quite in line with the art we are creating together for the "RE: Outsiders"collaboration.
This Short Film's Resident Directors are going to be the dynamic duo MarieIv & sojushots!
You can contribute to the "Mademoiselle Noir collaboration" here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/936201
ILLUSTRATORS: Lots of illustrations are needed for this collaboration, and the visual style should be based on "let your hair down" by sojushots: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/689401
Also, the color palette for illustrations should be dark and bleak - with lots of blacks, grays, and cool blues.
Here are some Illustrations that we need:
* Background Extras
* Demon with Black Hair
* NOTE: It would be great to have the visual elements of the character artwork separated so MarieIv can animate them.
* Mademoiselle's tower
* Medieval castles
* Old-fashioned taverns
* Old storefronts
* Stone clock tower
* Open book
* Old-fashioned lanterns
* Broken cart
JPEG FILE NOTE: The higher the resolution of your files, the better! They should be at least 2,000 pixels.
PSD FILE NOTE: If you could upload your layered PSD file in a ZIP as well that would be great!
