I wanted to share a short film I made recently. Back in October, I was lucky enough for it to be selected to be shown at the San Diego Undersea Film Expo. It seems that most underwater films are very similar now days. So I wanted to challenge myself to do something a little different.

 

Earlier this year, a young artist, named Nick Carro approached me to ask my permission to draw an image from one of my films that had an octopus in it. I was flattered, but had one condition...that was for him to show me the final piece. Not only did produce an amazing piece of art, but he also filmed himself doing it. He was kind enough to allow me to use some of his footage to make this film.

 

This is different.....and I am curious to know what people think of it. It was a very difficult to edit, but I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

Dustin

Wow! This is an amazing piece of work, Dustin. I really like the way you have drawn together the various techniques and styles. It makes for fascinating - and very different - viewing. And terrific videography.

 

Just fantastic! Congratulations.

 

Thanks so much for sharing it with us

Wow, amazing work. I really liked the transitions where the artwork morphed into the live animal, or vice versa. I can't even imagine how you did that, but it is a very impressive technique. I generally like your work, but this may be the my favorite of all of the pieces that you've posted here.

 

Can you tell that I'm impressed? :notworthy:

Wow. Just wow. You both deserve awards for this!

 

BTW since you asked for opinions, I will share one. The time shifting feels a little too artificial to me. I think I understand why you played with the speed, to match the soundtrack (which you did very well) but I would have preferred real time. That said, it works great as is!
