Creepy Folk Come Down- a Hop tu Na blog for Halloween! | 28th of October 2015

I LOVE Halloween- I love dressing up, I love trick or treat, I love any excuse to play games and enjoy the scary side of life!

So when Nigel (Scaanjoon) came to me with a project for his song “Creepy folk come down” I was very very happy- a few weeks of animating little ghouls and ghosties? Yes please!

The video wasn't needed for a while, so I had time to play with the various characters- Nigel wanted his little character Scaanjoon in there, so I came up with a storyline that incorporated him nicely.

I wanted a little Hansel and Gretel in the video, as I had been playing with these characters for a while, and really love them, so I came up with the idea of having them be friends with one of the little monsters- and who better to be their friend than Scaanjoon?!

My personal favourite character is the mermaid- I have a severe love of mermaids and can just imagine splashing in the waves with them, and the little fishies are adorable too!

I liked incorporating live action videos with the animation- I feel it added a touch of creepy to what otherwise could have ended up as a very “cute” video.

Nigel loved the video, and so did I, so I very much look forward to working with him again!

Happy Halloween guys!
