Personal Project

Chris Hilton Design Ltd

After taking a brief break from personal projects due to my heavy workload, at the end of 2014 I decided to take advantage of the inevitable December slow down by beginning a brand new personal project. The result was this animation based on my favourite type of bird, the Long Tailed Tit.

These little guys fly around in large groups, calling out with their distinctive “pep, pep, pep” call, to make sure they all stay together.

Digitally painted and designed in Adobe Photoshop, then brought into After Effects to bring the little bird to life and finish the composite. The finished animation was then taken into premier, where I edited the sound effects which were recorded out in Hampstead Heath and sourced online.
