These two weeks, we had the pleasure of working with directors from the Danish Film School, working on their final projects. Me and the other three people in my group worked with a nice guy called Troels on his Blacknisseiflm about the black metal elf in Santa's Workshop who wants to be able to make good toys, not menacing ones ('cause he'll get fired if he keeps donig that). This was the first time we animated without a teacher being on hand to help us, and it was a healthy experience. Please note that the following is not in story order.
This scene was the product of the first week. The elf's doll (his travel partner of sorts) is about to slip off his back.
These two scenes came the week after. Here, the elf is sad that the drawing he made is that of an evil toy, not a good one.
Here, the elf is showing his evil toy to Santa, thinking it's good work.
