Caper Babypants Take 2...



Last year we were fortunate enough to team up with Caspar Babypants (Chris Ballew of 'Presidents of the United States of America' fame) to make a video of one of his super catchy kids songs, Mr Rabbit (check it out here). So we were thrilled when he asked us to tackle another of his songs, My Flea Has Dogs. We've always wanted to something with a 1920's cartoon feel, so when Caspar said he was keen to do something black and white, rubber-hose style we jumped at the opportunity. So... along with some process work, here's the final video.

That song is going to be in my brain all day now! Superb retro feel (black and white is so classy, a chance to really nail the tonal contrasts) and the character design is excellent (as always). I particularly liked the trio pooch chorus wailing. The howling mouth / muzzle forms were fantastic! It's great to see the sketches too, dig that train! Sorry not to have visited of late, I always enjoy my stay on the mukblog!
