C BLOCK

I made this in 4th year at animation school at Sheridan. 5 months of storyboarding and re-boarding, 2 weeks of design and 3 months of mad production. Its all now but a fuzzy dream. There are a lot of things that were rushed, but it is what it is. Over the last year C Block has been showing in a few festivals around the world, and I was fortunate to attend a couple of them. I will try to make a a summary of it all at some point.

Hand drawn on paper, colored in Photoshop, composited in AfterEffects. Enjoy:

Dude, I'm sooo glad you finally put this up. I've been trying to explain its awesomeness to everybody I know; but it's been a little difficult to find on the net!
Great job with it man, as far as student films go, it's number one on my list!
I hope the festivals went well!

you can see that the bulk of your time was spent in the boarding, it's solid.

I remember walking to Sheridan caff last year and this film was playing on the TV just outside. I was stopped dead in my tracks and started watching... I just stared. The music and visuals were amazing. I could totally feel for the dog. People around me stopped too and we all just watched. It finished and i proceeded to get my lunch but all i could think about the film. I've been trying to find your blog ever since!

Dear Vlad,

Congratulations on this piece of art. It's incredible. I loved it so much, I had to feature for my readers -> http://www.adgirlandtechnerd.com/2009/11/ad-girl-nightly-c-block/

If you can share the name of the song you used in the film, I'd be SO happy.
