One of the projects we are looking into is an Anime web series. Over the last couple of months we have been busy researching and trying out several different software options for the anime project. After looking and trying out several different animation packages we have settled on Moho. Moho is a 2D animation program that uses rigs similar to a 3D program to animate it’s characters with. Hopefully this will help us achieve a hand-drawn 2D look without having to draw each frame.
In production now is a test project based on the Lord’s Prayer skit by Clyde Lee Herring. You can see an animation test for the character’s head turn below.
This short is a test to see how much of an anime look we can achieve with Moho as well as allowing us to learn and troubleshoot the software. We will update with more info about the project as we continue to work on it.
