School project again, for cut out animation.
Tough I did it digital again, I had to do it without using tweens, except whenever the camera zooms in or characters fly off the screen.

I had some difficulity settling with a subject for the movie, started and gave up on 4 of them untill I sticked with this, a Kingdum Heartish music video for Discworld's city watch.
The intro and outro doesn't work as well as I hoped, and the animation's still a bit stiff, but I'm happy with it anyway.

Music is Disco dancer from Parka, got it free on my new mp3 player, yay.

Character designs heavely based on Tealin's work, characters appearing in order, ignoring when they reappear, are:

Lupine Wonse, Carcer, Sam Vimes, Lord Vetinary, Angua von Uberwalt, The librarion (not a monkey! Don't say it!), Detrius the troll, Sybil, Rincewind, Moist von Lipwig, Cheery the first ever real female dwarve, Death, Doctor Cruces, Carrot Ironfoundson, John Keel and Vimes and Nobby as kids, nameless silhouettes, Sally (insert long last name) the vamprie lady, Eskarina Smith, Reg Shoe, Buggy Swires (Background gnome hanging under a bird) Sergeant Colon, Erol the swamp dragon and finally adult Nobby.

All Terry Prachett's creation. I asume anyway.

Snuff? Not sure what bits I can use from it. More of Vimes's butler?
Heh, nah.
If I'd ever make more Discworldd Guard animations, it'd be teh reenacment of Sam's psychic breakdown when he yells out the "Where's my cow" children's book during the climax.

This completely cracked me up. :lmao: The Watch books being my favourites (not to mention having read most of the other DW books too), I recognised everyone, and was laughing so hard I had to watch the whole thing again because I ended up missing half in fits of laughter.

Pure awesome. :clap: +fav

Re-watched this after reading through "Guards, Guards!", and the whole thing makes a lot more sense now. XD

...Well, for as far as this made any sense in the first place, of course ;P

It's a music video, so doesn't make much sense indeed ^^;
But now you know about 70% of the characters involved yeah.

Nifty! :D That's quite a lot of characters to fit into one video, but I'd say you pulled it off.

Out of curiosity, which one's Carcer--bowtie or green jacket?
Reply
:iconrogerregorroger:
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist Filmographer
Bowtie, but the other guy's voice, I screwed up.
The voices didn't fit anyway tough.

:icontmoh:
TMOH Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Voices can be hard, especially when they require an accent.

I don't think I've ever seen a Carcer that looks quite like yours, then. Exciting! :D (I, um, collect Carcer-designs. Because when there's no description, it's really intersting to see what people come up with.)

Didn't know what to do with him either.
He smiles a lot, and that's all I could remember, and I disliked how he looked on the Nightwatch cover, tough my design makes him to fat and old too. Hope you'll find a better design yourself then somewhere.

Hey, I never said I didn't like your version! :O I agree that the Kidby design for him isn't quite right, though--I always pictured him younger, too.
