As a test for a much larger upcoming project, I completed this 2 minute short using environments I built in UE4, then added hand-drawn 2D animation. I streamed the entire process on my Twitch channel over a couple of months of weekends.
The purpose of this wildlife documentary series is to expand and solidify the world of “Brackenwood”, a project I started way back in the early 2000s as Flash movies on Newgrounds. With this episode now complete, I’ve started building new environments for the larger project which is a 7-10 minute character-driven story. Once that’s done I’ll probably resume this wildlife documentary series, with 12 of them already written and designed.
