Shortcut Characters

An image from The Shortcut. The character is "Denny," the ringleader of the robbers, voiced by Joe Cappabianca.

"Lenny" voiced by Albert M. Pardo.

"Benny," voiced by Mike Carlo.

There's about three more weeks of animation left for this one, and then it's off the coloring, backgrounds, sound edit.....making a short film isn't a sprint; it's a fucking marathon.

I haven't been updating as frequently as I would like to because this is the first short film I've written that has a twist ending. What you think is the punchline of the story is actually the set up. I think the more images or animations that I post, the more it'll be a dead giveaway, not to get too precious about it.

My last film "Pinhead" was easier to give away animations on this blog because it was just two characters stabbing dolls.

Halfway there

Animation is 50, 60% complete. At the moment I'm still animating the heist sequence. Above images are rough layouts. Ever since college, I've been designing rudimentary environments in Maya. It's just a great tool to test out different camera angles to tell a story. It's fun, and it saves time, too!
