Two animators cross paths. They fall in love. And then they open an animation studio. Meet Ru Kuwahata and Max Porter, the founders of Tiny Inventions. Between the two of them, Ru and Max have to perform all the work of a much larger company, but they wouldn't have it any other way. Their process combines both handmade and digital elements and involves painstakingly recreating characters, sets, and lighting in programs like CINEMA 4D and After Effects. In this Creative Spark, Ru and Max explain how they established Tiny Inventions and take us through the creative process of Between Times, their latest film.
Male Speaker 1: I love that animation has the power to take something that's very complex and simplify it. Female Speaker 1: The look of the film and the characters, they all come from observation. It's fun to study their features, study their posture and what makes who they are. We specialize in hybrid animation, both analog and digital. Male Speaker 1: We believe that there's benefits to both technique and when you combine them you create something that's new.
Something that doesn't necessarily conform to oh, this was created in the computer or oh, this was created entirely by hand. Female Speaker 1: But at the same time, we secretly love the challenge and, and love learning every step of the way. Male Speaker 1: And at the end of the day we're not trying to recreate reality. We're trying to create something that's beyond what our real world has to offer.
