Sometime around February, Mark Kenneth Hitosis, Kate Cruz and I kicked off a collab project from a casual chat about creating a short animation that would encompass our three different specialties, Character Creation, Concept Art, and Animation. It was to be a 15 second short about Noodle from Gorillaz playing her guitar. Though short and simple, it was a very ambitious project considering that it was to be our first time to collaborate and we had to work on it on our free time despite our busy work schedules.
Along the way we were able to ask help from a good friend of mine, you may know her as the bassist from Ben&Ben, Agnes Reoma. As a musical genius, she lent us her skills by providing us with the audio track of the electric guitar plus some video references for us to accurately animate her playing.
Three gruelling but fun months later, we are proud to present our First Collaboration Project: Noodle’s Room.
