Smeshariki reel!!!

Here are some of the scenes I animated for the "Smeshariki: Nachalo" movie, unfortunately not all of my scenes made it into the final cut and some got re-edited or made considerably shorter. That is why I also posted production playblasts. Also in a couple areas there have been some subsequent minor and unnecessary changes to my finalized and approved animation, which in my opinion didn't benefit it whatsoever, rather the opposite. You can perhaps spot the differences if you compare it to the playblasts. Oh well, most of this is still my unaltered work and I'm happy with how it turned out.

Here are the scenes I made for the "Smeshariki:Nachalo" movie, which would roughly translate as "Funballs: the beginning". Yes, funballs. Although in the US they're marketed as Gogoriki and in Germany as Kikoriki. If there's any more versions I'm not aware of those. The movie is the prequel to the immensely popular kids' series which have been running for 7 or 8 years. The series are done in Flash, although there's a spin-off "Pin-code" which is also in 3d. The movie's not in theaters anymore, so I suppose it's safe to post this. I added subtitles for your enjoyment. I'll add the actual movie footage a bit later once I figure out how to rip it out of the movie :D
