Goat & Aaron

by Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Hornet director Gabe Askew creates another singular world of careful textures and fresh perspectives for his newest animated short called “Goat & Aaron.”

Askew: “I was laying in bed one morning, looking at the dust twinkle in a shaft of light from the window. Almost like a sneeze, a series of images came to be. I rolled over grabbed a sketchbook and very roughly sketched out about ten images I wanted to create. The script tying them together came later.

“But I was really keen on getting away from the computer and approaching a project the way I approach illustration. This is why each shot is formatted differently.  And each shot began as a painting which I took into 3D and projected onto geometry. I’m not sure this technique is right for other projects but it was a refreshing break from the normal process.”
