It’s Kind of a Funny Story holds a very special place in my heart. For a number of reasons.
For me there were three standout shots. These were both technially chalenging and the most fun to work on.
Here is a link to the IMDB page for the film: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0804497/
This second set of shots shows some animation work we did at Curious Pictures for the film also.
These animation shots were challenging. Mostly logistics. Budget was a bit tight, and we didn’t have enough time to get the animation department (all freelancers) integrated into the production pipeline. There were many late nights, and folks background rendering local.
In retrospect, how I loved the pipeline we built at curious. My friends and I spent years putting it together. It was all cobbled together with perl. BUT, there was not another television/animation studio in NYC at the time who had anything like it:)
