Get comfy. This is gonna take a while. 

We are going to create an entire short film / MoGraph piece from scratch, and document every darn step in the process. This entire making-of series spans about 10 hours, and will show you the whole shebang from start to finish.

In this first video, we go over the process of coming up with a half-formed vague idea, and then fleshing out through style research, sketching, music searches, and Googling stuff. By the end we have something that kinda looks like a story, and a script even!
