Sheeped Away, my graduation short

Post by Junaid » 04 Sep 2011, 14:32

I just finished my short 'Sheeped Away'
Forum regular and teacher at my school Peter Wassink was my mentor during the making of the film.
The film can be viewed here :




Let me know what you think!

Sheeped Away tells the tale of a farmer who just wants to be with his beloved sheep. When a giant UFO enters his life to claim his sheep, what will he do to keep them safe from harm? And can he do this without waking his monstrous wife?


The whole point of making “Sheeped Away” was to make a tribute of sorts, to the old American cartoons I grew up with. They were not necessarily made for children but neither were they unwatchable for them. I wanted to make something just like that; something for both adults and kids. And adult kids like me.

@Elodie

Animation, clean-up and color were done in TvPaint.
Special Effects and compositing in Eyeon Fusion.

Glad you like the film :)

The film is a good effort and well carried out. All of its production aspects are also professionally carried out, which is quite an achievement to be proud of for a student film.
I do think though that i'm personally tired of this style of design by now. Ever since Ren and Stimpy we haven't stopped seeing this style. You certainly mentioned that you intended a homage to the styles of animation you grew up on, but we've seen that kind of nod through and through during the last decade. And the original style you refer to in itself is a nod to earlier styles from the mid-century.
Regardless, I'm positive this flic will get you the jobs that you'd want as it showcases good skills.

Thanks for your kind words and feedback!
I do agree with you about the style. If I had more time, I would have done more research for the character designs.

Thank you for sharing this, it's one of the most impressive graduation films I've seen, save the spectacular works coming out of Gobelins. You should be proud of yourself.

I really enjoy this one that respect for abductive reasoning by gray (or woolen) mutant movie.
The farmer has to named Sōkratēs and his wife named Xanthippe, aren't them ? :mrgreen:

I am not able to understand say in the Netherlands language, however this story's plot is well structured.
The farmer become happy end.

Nice works ( ´∀`) b.

This is one of my favorite shorts I've watched in a LONG time and I really enjoyed it. The perfect mix of cute, funny and happy and the ending was an unexpected twist to boot. The fact that it's well animated, stylized, beautifully colored and consistent is really impressive. My hats off to you ^_^. Is it too early to have a "Sheeped Away" TV show? If it happens, consider me in!
