Hiccups, the tale of an epic spasm of the diaphragm and those living under its tyrannical reign! This is an award winning short from KCC's New Media Arts program in which I was heavily involved. With festivals all wrapped, I can finally post it!
Hiccups was largely produced in 2007, with a bit of extra detail work put in by yours truly through early 2008. With a core of 4 lead students, and a few other helping hands this project was ours alone, start to finish.
The overall story is the one aspect I can't lay major claims to, that credit goes to Cameron Nitta and Jay Susuico. I took part in group discussions over the specific gags and story flow, rather than outright script and concept writing. Once I tackled the storyboards and concept art however, I began adding to the scenes in some significant fashion.
I thought the visual style ended up working out pretty well, an aspect in which I had much more involvement from the start. As noted in the credits, I was lead director, editor, DP, compositor, and personally handled the majority of the lighting setup. I also tackled the character UVs and textures, as well as a few key props (chicken, the paper bag, etc) and some animation work here and there.
Of course many props to everyone else on the crew chiefly:
