About this video
Leap into the extraordinary universe of "JUMP" 👟 Our new short film explores the boundaries of animation, fusing together mesmerizing 2D and 3D styles. Join our hero, Leaf, on an extraordinary adventure of what's possible in the realm of animation. Get ready to soar into a world where dreams take flight! The process we landed on involved trying new techniques for animation, effects, and compositing. We alternated animation frame rates on twos and on ones to enhance the action. After 3D was locked, we added hand-drawn animation effects over the top. In compositing, we applied cross hatching for shadows and half tone effect for highlights with a new custom toolkit of shaders.
