Here is a couple of my background concepts, and the working out of the axe scene with Rum. I am going for a heavy lined style for the whole animation and am trying to keep the backgrounds looking jaggy like the characters. That's the trees where Rum and the grey squirrel live. There is also the shed where Rum goes to find his axe.
Red Rum - A film about a deeply disturbed rodent
Why hello there. It is of nice of you to have stopped by for a little bit of SQUIRREL INSANITY!!! This blog is for the production of my short film entitled 'Red Rum'. It concerns a paranoid red squirrel by the name of Rum, and the stress that is struck into his life by a certain grey squirrel moving next door. There is also a funny looking fox, by the name of Fox, involved.
Here I shall showcase the progress of my film. And perhaps a tad of the insanity that shall come with making it.
