Little Freak - Animation

Little Freak is a short 3D animation created by Edwin Shaap and is a part of biggest project (master thesis)

The story is about little boy who.. oopps! Just scroll up and watch it yourself.
I find this little animation quite sad and a bit depressing, which is probably elevated by limited colour pallet to black and white (no colours at all really). Voice acting is very good, emotional and moving. However story itself is really generic and simple. Personally, I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing.

The most impressive part of this animation is the way face of little boy is rendered and animated, with attention to the tiniest detail.

Edwing Shaap shared 'Making - of' video which explains how he achived the end result (and how much time it took him to do it). In the future I'd also try to use a range of different media to achieve the better quality.
