In these experimental short films directors garth+ginny play with visual conventions and try new techniques.
Animated in photoshop by drawing in a 50x50 pixel grid frame by frame, their aim was to translate character and a sense of fun to this small scale, whilst working with a limited colour palate. The audio is composed using an 8bit plug-in for Apple’s garage band.
The films have been a success both online and at festivals, appearing at the Pictoplasma: characters in motion tour; Berlin, NYC and Buenos aires. The shorts went viral appearing on inspirational creative blog Drawn.ca.
