Orcs Must Die! Gauntlet
The first official animation production from chazamation; Orcs Must Die! Gauntlet parodies the numerous trap options available in the video game Orcs Must Die! What will happen to the poor orc if the mouse trap is set up just right? Watch and see.
One of my last tasks on the Orcs Must Die! project was to create a set of storyboards for logo animation. Unfortunately none were chosen, but I really loved the animatic I did for the animation above; as, in my mind, it stood out from the rest. In my spare time over the span of four months, I was determined to see this animated. Hard work, and many free time hours later, it’s complete! I hope you have as much fun watching it as I had producing it. Enjoy, and please leave a comment telling me what you thought.
Animation created using ToonBoom Animate Pro 2, and backgrounds in Photoshop.

*I could probably count how many hours I spent on this, from animatic to finalization. But that would hurt my brain. Aside from the four hours I spent on the animatic at work, all the rest of the time spent on this was spare time only; an occasional hour here and there. Starting around mid-June, and finished late-September.
**lol, I don’t even know why I list direction. I was the only one that worked on this. I’m such a nut; I directed myself. 😛
