RedBox Ninjas

My most recent assignment is now live on the Wizards website. Like the previous D&D cartoons, it’s a promo short but this one is for the Dungeons & Dragons Red Box. I storyboarded from the script and it came out at 3½ mins, so I went ahead and completed it. Just before it went live though, I was asked to edit it down to around 2½ mins to improve the pace and comic timing. The result is a much more effective, snappier short which I’ve embedded below. However, you can see my uncut version – complete with an extra gory courtesan death – on my own YouTube channel here.

The software I used was Animate Pro 2 (of course) which allowed me to do the sweet 2½D environments, lighting and filter FX.

Seems to be pretty well received so far. Discussion is happening here on the Wizards site and here on the Brackenwood forum.

  11. Hmm still no uncut version, says “removed by user”? Any chance of seeing the uncut version anymore?

    • I’ll be adding new music and re-uploading. Long story but I hope to get around to putting it back up on YouTube soon.

  12. I’m an amature animator in the up coming. I fell in love with the beautiful animations the team created ( Brakenwood mostly). i just learned how to use Toon boom studios TM, and I’m working on a comedic animation using my friends as voice actors. i have a couple animations done; sadly all I’ve been doing is stick figure animations – still, i always get feed-back saying “they are awesome” or “well done”, and i should start doing more inter graded stuff or be more serious with my animating. All i wanted to say is that you guys are amazing and if you have anything for me to know like tips, software, etc I’d really love to hear it.

    P.S. Also I’m trying to get into a good college for animation, if you happen to know/have information on good scholarships my email is posted

    signed your newest fanatic
