Stefan Janoski - "The Bat and The Matt"
"Two very different earth creatures have an encounter that will change their lives forever. Based on true events..."
Stefan approached me to animate his doodles for this quirky storybook-style short film. I took scans of his pen-on-paper artwork and brought them into After Effects to bring life to the characters and scenes.
The film went to a few short film festivals, winning "Best Animation" at the 2020 Vegas Movie Awards.
