It’s called Movingboxjunk.
But don’t tell anyone.
It’s supposed to be a secret.

Behind the Scenes: Interns!

27 04 2009

Hello, world.

This is Steve, a current all-purpose animation intern at Moving Box Studios. My creative director Chris Davidson wants to give you all some insight into what us interns actually do (i.e. not watch cartoons all day), so here’s some insider info.

I had my hands on the pilot episode of Java, correcting colors and whatnot. Java refused to “pop” against the background in his drab duds. We can’t have our title character blending into the background, so I created a bunch of alternative palettes. I consulted with Chris on what the final color choice should be, and after picking it, I went to town in Adobe Flash changing each instance of Java to the new palette by Cmd + I’ing and Cmd + K’ing everything into submission. Repetitive? Eh, maybe, but it seriously helps develop an eye for color, attention to detail, and, well, using Flash in general. Java will be coming to your screen this summer… so I better hop to it.

That’s all for now. Cheers!

Oh boo it’s Monday…

Wrong! I mean, it’s still Monday, but there’s nothing to “boo” about because there’s a new release out from Moving Box, and boy do you wanna watch it!

By now you’ve seen Tom Knight’s “The Elephant’s Lullaby,” and you know that it’s one of the cuter things online, up there with that sneezing baby panda. Now you can get a behind-the-scenes look at how the animation was created, by watching…

The Making of “The Elephant’s Lullaby”!

This featurette includes commentary from the team behind the animated video. With interesting and insightful words from Nutmeg Doherty (Executive Producer), Chris Davidson (Producer/Director), Wright Rickman (Production Designer/Lead Animator), Liz McLelland (Art Director), and Tom Knight (the Singer/Songwriter himself!), you’ll probably want to go back and watch the original animation with all of your newly-acquired appreciation.

In other news, Ithaca Tape to Disc is up and running. Check it out if you need your old video tapes converted to high-quality digital video.
