Year of Horse

Today marks the beginning of the Chinese new year celebrations. 2014 is the year of the horse.
I though it'd also be a good time to share some preview images from current Team Nino project,
'A Horses', made in collaboration with Melissa Choong. 

'A Horses' is the working titled for our planned short film which ambitiously fuses together animation,
photography, illustration and origami. I've become obsessed with origami after receiving an origami
desk calendar as a secret Santa gift last year. I also discovered Melissa has a fondness for paper crafts
 too and owns a fantastic collection of pattered and textured papers. Everything you see on screen we
made of paper including the background and 'special effects'. 

The images presented are a series of tests from a shoot we did last week where we experimented
with different lighting, composition and creature movement. I'm quite encouraged by the results
so hope to start making the final film for real within the next few weeks. I'll be sure to keep you
updated with our progress.
