This project was a unique challenge for me. I wanted to experiment and play with film special effects. The concept would combine Walt Disney’s animated short: “Get a Horse” with original animation done by myself and Cody Reanu. Pulling inspiration from Disney’s “Roger Rabbit” the project would mix live actors into an animated world.
The effect was achieved using a large green screen set. Patrick Fragale, playing the director, walked out onto a stage and began to act with the (non present) animated characters. Cody Reanu, playing the Ajax Delivery man, filmed his scene separately. In post production the two of us were placed side by side and inserted into the animated world. The end result was surprisingly realistic and a great experiment into the world of film special effects.
