We wanted to do a video clip for a befriended band. Though we knew we wanted to create a 2D animation that resembles a shadow play, we had no clue (or any experience) what kind of animation tool we should use. At first we muddled with some 2D animation tools but didn't get anywhere near the desired visual effects: Especially the blurring (that you get when a prop or a character appears on the canvas) and a realistic-looking lighting was practically impossible to accomplish with 2D animation software.
Finally we familiarised ourselves with blender. Keeping in mind that we are certainly no pros but two enthusiasts with no animation experience and little spare time, we were impressed by the possibilities and the results blender offered us. We hope you like it, too.
