New series is here - First Friends CITY. We continued to work on First Friend animations for Tolo Toys. So for 2 months I animated 3 stories about City citizens.
Here is how they were made.
It was a great time I spend doing stop motion. Not easy, sometimes hard... especially due to my passion to discover and to develop techniques and materials. Each movie I made with new tricks, new materials, new gear... upgrading my skills every time.
And I'm glad to draw the finish line here looking back at where I started and what I end up with.
THANK YOU TEAM
Daniel Olsén for great original and unique music compositions.
Anna Makovnikova and all guys from Tolo Toys for giving us freedom to create what we love.
And my wife for writing great stories, and my son for support and ideas ;)

Final chapter of First Friend stop motion story. Seriously developed my scene building skills by discovering styrofoam material. Cutting, shaping, finishing, painting... to have a lot of trees shrubs and branch for Owl and bees house.
And of course some making of photos:
