One Stuck Duck
This Friday One Stuck Duck Productions are showing their latest effort to keep busy. Test, a music video they produced/directed and animated. One Stuck Duck is a collection of freelance artists joining together to see what can be accomplished creatively when they “…just shut-up and work together.” This is their third collaborative project and you can track the progress of their video, and see just how they made it at their sister site slipperyrock.com. Also posted there are some great tutorials on how to build and animate characters in After Effects and how to integrate After Effect into your Flash animation workflow.
In the current environment here in NYC, where work seems harder and harder to come by, it is great to see a bunch of talented people taking matters into their own hands and showing just what can be accomplished by pooling their talents together and working on each others projects. I wish them the best of luck and hope their efforts lead to more work in the future. If you want to see the entire video, and hear The Subterraneans live, (the band they made the video for,) they are having a screening at Blondies, 1771 Second Ave, on Friday the 17th of April at 8pm.
