[COMPLETE] 'Heaven's Countryland' [adult swim] IDs

on: September 10, 2014, 01:08:51 pm


Helleh. Long time.

Finished something earlier this year. I responded to a wider general work enquiry from David OReilly (my hero. For real). You may know him from his External World short, his 3D Adventure Time episode or his 3D game sections in Spike Jonze's HER. Nice.

Anyways, under his direction I went straight ahead with a bunch of scenes in Photoshop, using a script as guidance for various scenes. 4 episodes were made of these shorts, David I think comp'd them and made them look and move and sound great, and I believe [adult swim] is currently playing them.

Here's one:

Really nice, I enjoyed all four. I think you really nailed the feeling of NK low-tech propaganda.

You don't happen to know the name of the song that plays right at the end, do you?

I'm not sure what that song is, I wouldn't be surprised if it's original music created for these shorts. Does it ring a bell?

That was hilarious. I was honestly laughing out loud at that.

Perhaps the pacing could be a tad slower, though I might be wrong.
How quickly all the subtitles hit you I think makes it even funnier because you barely get enough time to process them. Short and sweet. You don't want to drag something like that out longer than need be.

Excellent!

Hi Mathias,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I think the idea is to keep it short and punchy :) From what I remember (though I never saw it) I think a real child's voice was used whilst still in production but the shorts ended up being something like 2 mins - a bit too long for an ident. So this voice - I have no idea what voice this is - was used. Gets through things quicker, and I also think it's kind of funny. I think it's a computer-generated voice?

These amused me very much. Great work! The mixture of various low-tech styles reminded me of Made In Wario games.
