Have you noticed that every time you boil farfalle pasta, it always spills? That seems annoyingly interesting to me, so I asked myself why. Maybe the pasta simply wants to get out? I made a short animation illustrating this concern of mine.
I used several different animation techniques in this shot: 3D for the fire, 2D vector animation for the pot, pasta, and hand; and cel animation for the spilled foam. It made me realize that combining all these mediums into one gives a motion designer artistic freedom to experiment and create the best animation piece.
This shot was created as part of the Creative Lunch Break series curated by Stepdraw.
Thanks to Karolis Grabys for the superb sound design.
