Here is the remake of The Candy Counter Horrors animation. There are quite a few changes from beginning to end. Some are very subtle and others rather blatant. See if you can find the differences.
In the first version there was a disconnect between the story as perceived by the viewers and the story I envisioned.
What I've learned from this .....
When creating a painting we try to guide the viewers' eyes around the picture with the intent that they will dwell on key areas long enough to formulate a general impression or feeling or even a story. There are no time restrictions.
With animation, time comes into play. The camera not only has to guide the viewers' gaze but also has to allow enough time for them to notice what is important before moving on. Time is key. What I perceive as being the correct timing is not necessarily what others require in order to assemble the pieces for a correct understanding of my story-line.
I'm happier with this newer version. What was needed was a change in emphasis for certain details by adjusting the timing and duration.
Please let me know whether or not this newer version provides a clearer story line.
the scary atmosphere is definitely there. You jump in another animation-dimension with this one Brian.
I haven't seen the first version, this one reads very clear to me. I actually didn't expect that the kids would scary the shopkeeper good point,
I wasn't concerned about the spook having any motivation. I was more concerned with portraying the kids as being accepting of the behaviour and confident that a good tongue-poke was all powerful. Probably more true of kids today than of yesteryear because of movies and tv.
