Pertti the animation


This animated short film was my thesis work when I graduated, but I had since then almost forgotten about it. I watched it for the first time in ages when I put it up on my work portfolio. It made me realize how much I miss making animations. Especially that kind of traditional, frame-by-frame hand drawn. It took countless hours to complete but we had so much fun. One of my favorite parts was recording the sounds. The role of Pertti, the little boy, was played by my friend’s 7-year old son.

The animation is in Finnish, but there’s English subtitles. And anyway there’s not so much talk. But I’m warning you, it’s not for the faint-hearted! :)

Another thing, there’s still time to enter the giveaway.

    Ihana kekseliäs Pertti! Katselin tätä tyttöjen kanssa ja saivat kunnon naurukohtauksen vessanpyttyvaahtokylvyssä hampaitaan pesevästä Pertistä. Kysymys kuuluin :" Äiti miten hampaat voi harjata samalla harjalla kuin pympän, eikö hampaat haise kakalle?" Hehhee :))
    Kiitos Jutta, tämä oli mainio!

    Ah, tuli aivan muistot omasta pojasta joka yritti harjata hampaansa vessaharjalla joskus silloin ihan pienenä… :D

    Pertillä on ihan sama "minä itte"-ylpeys!

    Terrific, Jutta! When you said not for the faint hearted I wasn't sure what to expect but it's very charming, actually. I can see why you enjoyed doing that type of work. xo – g

    Lizzy, thank you!!

    Georgianna, I thought a warning might be in order :) I felt I really found my niche when drawing animation, should definitely do it more.
