Kickin - First mini-episode


Felipe Esquivel writes:

Kickin' is a new web animated series we are doing here at Chaman Animation Studio. This is the first of three short episodes intended as a test for longer future episodes. Produced almost entirely in Blender, from modeling to editing (comp in Fusion).

The first episode is "Pase largo" or "Long Pass", a light soccer comedy.

For these short episodes we're using the help of my kids and their friends for the voices. The idea is once we get a co-production parter everything will be smoother.



  1. Very fun and cartoony! Really like the visual style.

    Curious about how you did the faces. They look flat and 2D, but the eyes and mouths look like they're animated rather than using texture switching. Could you explain a little?

  2. Hi, thanks for your comments.

    The models are rigged to allow cartoony animation (thank you bendy bones!) and have some deformation for motion blur ( we don't use it much in these episodes), we hope to push the limits a little bit more.

    Everything is geometry with static textures and shape keys.
