Introducing "Jelly Cars" by Lee Caller

Escape Studios animation tutor Lee Caller has recently completed his short film Jelly Cars, a short story about perseverance in the urban jungle.   

"Jelly Cars" is an inventive piece of film-making;  it's a charming story, entertaining and fun - and beautifully animated. 

Lee took a simple exercise - animating a vehicle in motion, (in this case, animating a cartoon car, using the free yellow Beetle rig by Aaron Parker), and turned it into a short film, which has already been accepted into its first film festival - the annual KRAF film festival in Croatia.

Congratulations to Lee on his excellent work; we wish him every success in film festivals around the world.

Below is some more of Lee's work - a pantomime shot with Morpheus. Lee's work is not just technically accomplished but also entertaining and fun to watch, and this week he is helping our students to master the principles of acting, dialogue, lipsync and pantomime animation. 

One of the best things about teaching students in central London is the broad range of talent we are able to draw on, bringing the best animators and tutors in the business to train a new generation of animators and digital artists.

You can see more of Lee's work at his website. You can find his IMDB profile here.
