I've tighted up and improved the animation as well as taken out the live action part just after the slap. I've included the first of many backgroung characters I hope to put in. There are so many awesome ones already on the site.
This one was a toughy as there were lots of awesome designs for Edison and his workshop. I think these 2 designs work well with eachother. I also went with this workshop in the end because of the awesome progression the design made from a simple line drawing to a fall coloured piece. The perspectives are really good as well, it was easy for me to cut up in Photoshop and turn into a 3D room in after effects.
As with Joe meets God, I'll be putting in more backgrounds characters while they talk in the field, I just wanted to get this up on the site like the others.
I've been making things move and playing around with different designs. This combination of designs seem to work at the moment. The background seems a little bare, more background characters would be cool to fill it up. The animation for Joe will be tightened a little, especially in the "hipster friend" part. It's compressed and made small, but I just wanted to get something moving up on the site for people to see and make suggestions, comments etc. I also played around with the idea of seeing Joe's live action spin around when God slaps him. Cheers!
PS. For some reason it's added one about 40 secs of blankness, I'm not sure why it did this.
Thought I'd post up a screenshot from the animation I've started. It's not finished and more stuff will go into the background, including characters. I'm also working on the lighting. I've used this caveman but Comments are welcome of course. Facelesscow's Buffalo Portrait was an influence for the composition for the shot. (What is that sabertooth tiger up to?!) :D

Took quite some while to render the texture and art so that they looked 'integrated' rather than sticking out like sorethumb. Hope this works.
