Pepper&Carrot derivation: a Motion Comic video project by Morevna team

Published on

Link: official page of the Morevna Motion Comic project here

Congratulation to the Morevna team for finishing their derivation : a full Motion Comic episode done with only open-source tools and based on the episode 6 of Pepper&Carrot (original webcomic here). If you don't know what a motion comic is, you can read this definition:

"A motion comic (or animated comic) is a form of animation combining elements of print comic books and animation. Individual panels are expanded into a full shot while sound effects, voice acting, and animation are added to the original artwork. Text boxes and sound effect bubbles are typically removed to feature more of the original artwork being animated." Motion Comic, Wikipedia.

The project started 9 month ago after a successful Indiegogo campaign. I think the result is honest in regards to the initial 4000$ low budget and also in regards of the individual skill of the team. The project mostly respect the art style of my drawings even if I found a lot of patch painted over my original drawing a bit rushed, or deforming a bit too much facial expressions of my original drawings. I wasn't involved into reviewing the movie or art direction before release. I'm glad they used FLOSS tools: Krita, Blender, Papagayo-NG, RenderChan on GNU/Linux workstations. Congratulation also to all the supporters who made this result possible; the voice over were really professional quality!

Excellent work!

Are there any plans for a DVD or DVD iso? I think that'd be really cool.

I don't think there is any plan, not as far as I know (but I know very little about the core of the production of this project, the Morevna team was really independent about it ( and that was nice in a way so I could focus on production of new episodes) but also a bit too bad cause I couldn't interact for art quality.

Hey Konstantin,

I’m sure your movie is great. However, your Cloudflare hosting puts up a Google Captcha wall for people on TorBrowser. Too bad.
