Sheldon Cohen

Animated Stories, Sheldon Cohen.

In 2005, I  animated some sequences for the film “Animated Stories, The Sheldon Cohen Collection”.  I decided to mix real life  photography with my animation to give it a nice cut-out look. Some movie samples are below. You will need Flash to view them.

Office Foreplay

Office Foreplay

Add two teaspoons of unadulterated insanity, combine one cup of finely diced office chowder and a pinch of gratuitous nudity. Strain mixture through office cubicle and blend ingredients from nine to five, use overtime if necessary. Final result should be a hilarious animated glimpse into the inner workings of a high-tech workplace. Post-production by Philippe Desmarais.

Phil Karew

Phil Karew. Episode 1 and 2.

Phil Karew:

An oldie but a goldie. This is my third year animation film from University.  Premise is simple enough. An eccentric teenager living in the dysfunctional town of Littlecrock describes his life story in under 4 mins. This film was done entirely under the camera using paint on cell. Over a thousand images were painstakingly painted over a period of a few months. Warning, full frontal “cartoon” nudity ahead.

Voices & Sound design by Brad Smith. Backgrounds by Ben Boucher.

Phil Karew 2 (The Interview):

Watch Phil Karew as he swaggers and guffaws his way through a television interview, gets eaten by wild animals, dunked in asian lavatories and torn apart in brutal finale.
