The Prophecies of Nostradamus: Part 1

A short, stupid cartoon about a tall, clever man.

People sometimes ask how I got the “cardboard” effect. Um… it’s cardboard. All filmed live, with just a bit of animation added (the flame, the eyes). The opening involved building a little lego carriage for my camera, and pushing it across a table hoping the extremely flimsy trees wouldn’t flop over this time.

I’m pretty sure that’s how they did the Saruman’s tower bits in Lord of the Rings, too.
