The friendly creatures of Snuff Mountain, Tennessee decided not to be left off the reality TV bandwagon. Never mind that the wagon was never going to pull over and let them on. Is it the most humble expression of pop culture you’ve ever seen, or an apt metaphor for our time?
All the art started as pencil illustration. The animation was spline based, made with Anime Studio Pro. The audio was produced in-house, using studio built foley props and echo chamber. It’s all very straightforward. I looked at a lot of old Termite Terrace shot layouts, and staged these shots with that attitude of ‘getting it done’.
I have depicted a setting that is gradually turning toward sustainability. The main focus is wind power, and this piece is available for customization and licensing. The methods used to make this animation is a blend of warm traditional techniques, and wholly digital components.
