Old Birds by brandokay Old Birds by brandokay
This is an animatic, 3:38 in length;
Part of my final for one of my last classes at SCAD's Atlanta campus.

At the start of the quarter my class helped me whittle down my ideas for a short animatic to either "Bigfoot at the Office" or "Two Old Ladies Fighting in the Park."

Then I thought of the ham thing and... well. How could I not do the ham thing.

Anyway. Enjoy!

Ahaha, I love that. I know I'm commenting, like...four years after the fact, but I just now came across this and I find it hilarious. I especially like the D< looks on the first lady's face. And the ham, of course. :XD:
Awesome job, anyway~ you're brightened my day. (from four years in the past! :iconilikeitplz: )

I love this, I don't often see animatic animation that impresses me but I was very impressed by this.
The story is simple and effective which is the formula for an exellent short.
I can see the work that has gone into this as a fellow animator and you should be very proud with the result!
I look forward to seeing more =D

I really enjoy making animatics. I'd love to get a gig making these for a living at a studio somewhere.

Good choice of sound effects and songs. But damn, pigeons eating ham? Something just seems so effed up about that.

I'm not sure where that even came from.

I just looked down at my sketchbook and there she is, an old lady holding up a big ol' ham.

WTF, brain.

that was great, funny~ what program did you use?

brandokay Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
All of that was done in Photoshop and iMovie (the default movie editing program for Mac OSX).

It's a simple program that's always gotten the job done.

Now I finally got a copy of the Final Cut Pro package, though, so I have to learn a program that's a lot more professional (aka - complicated).
@_@

Glad you liked it!

sweet, good luck getting the hand of final cut pro. I love the thing. I thought you might have also used adobe after affects for your animation, im suprised at how decent imovie seems. i want a mac now, haha. :D
