During our time at De Montfort University we proposed a project for the final major project in Animation. Our task was to create an animated short and design and create a story and characters to be featured in it. This project was called 'Post Haste'.
'Post Haste' is an animated short about a postman (or mailman) in fear of losing his job to automation. The animation sees the two main characters, the Postman and Postbot, fighting to retrieve the final parcel. After the storyboard, animatic and video referencing stages we designed, modelled, textured, rigged and animated all characters in the animation, as well as the 3D environment.
The final animation was displayed at De Montfort University's Degree Show 2017. This was a very exciting project to work on and we're very grateful to all the Animation staff at DMU on their support and feedback during this project.
