It’s the most wonderful time of the year.. or at least the busiest! As we all scramble to get those awkward last few gifts together we thought we would share a little Christmas gif of our own.
Jacob our house artist, created this animated short inspired by the 1982 animated film depicting Raymond Briggs’ children’s story ‘The Snowman’. In this cheeky little short, we’ve replaced the gentle lovable snowman for our very own little mascot Leicester the mouse.
After scamping out a rough storyboard to work out the key points in the scene, Jacob worked up the design and created a short animation test, capturing the boys hair and clothes engaged in flight.
Editing intern Tammy worked with the tree artwork to create a looping majestic tree conveyer belt motion in After Effects whilst Jacob coloured up the animation frames and comped the piece together.
We at Three Blind Mice wish you all a very Merry Christmas, hope you have a fantastic well earned break. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2018!
