digital ARTS: how did you come up with the ideas of how to execute this?
shotopop’s casper FRANKEN: sometimes there’s a little more error than we hoped for in the trial and error situation… we are very interested in the tactile, flawed nature of handmade items but when it came to building our set, we got a bit caught up and ended up with a set that was slightly smaller than the slightly too large camera we had. initially it was the idea to film everything and add a few after effects in after effects, but after some tooing and froing about our set dilemma, it seemed the best solution was to incorporate some more dynamic camera moves using 3d. this also lent itself well to the execution of the little caterpillar and the crow — so perseverance and bouncing idea off other people in the team helped to iron out most of the issues.
