This was my final project at 8 Hats High. It was and still may be the most fun I have ever had animating on a project. We were working with J.J. Sedelmaier Productions, and all of us on the team got to put our own fingers on real traditional animation. We all came in on the weekends to pull it off, and it was worth every second.
A little bit from Sedelmaier’s site:
