Description:


    A short but sweet animation shot in a raw home-video style, Bin Can Can follows the increasingly elaborate antics of a group of suburban “wheely bins.” Their awkward but meticulously choerographed dance is sychronized hilariously with Offenbach’s familiar soundtrack. The animation (including the compositing) was produced almost entirely with SideEffects Software’s Houdini on a standard desktop machine.

    The background plates are still photographs with CGI bins moving on top. The shaky illusion of a handheld camera was achived by cropping and panning the final composites using motion channels originally derived from mouse input.
