Welcome to the official blog of "Bystander!" We’d like to start off our blog with introducing you to our project and site...
Bystander is a traditional 2D animation created using the digital ink and paint method. This short film follows a man who gets promoted--and sent to New York City--only to find that it's not exactly what he expected. We are producing this project through Studio 22, a Northwestern University student-led production company, for their 2011 Special Projects Grant.
Since this animation is a year-long project, we want to keep everyone updated on our progress! And that's where this blog comes in. We'll be posting frequent updates on our status, along with character drawings, finished frames, photos of the production, and videos documenting how we're making the animation and fun how-to clips about drawing our characters. We're also sporting a nifty progress bar at the bottom of the page!
Also, Like us on Facebook.
So come back often, there will be lots of information and goodies to keep you at bay until our June release!
