Like yesterday’s post about a painting-a-day project, “Make Mine Mini,” here’s another 365-day challenge, again with tremendous results. Today’s OBT is called “365 – One Year, One Film, One Second a Day,” and it’s pretty impressive. Greg McLeod of the Brothers McLeod spent I can’t imagine how many hours making this mini epic, and I hope he understands what a great use of his time it was.
My first watching was just to see what it was about. They I began seeing patterns. When I watched it the second time, I realized I could tell what time of year it was not just by the month markers but also by the seasonal content. By the third watching, I was pausing and rewinding and having a great time trying to figure out what the animator was thinking, what had happened to him that day.
“. . . it forces you to generate ideas that you feel worthy of animating. Even on a boring uneventful day, you have to search for inspiration. I found it very rewarding.” -Greg McLeod to CartoonBrew
