Tragedy In One Act

A couple of years ago I made an independent short called "Tragedy In One Act".
I did it because I hadn't gone to an animation school and was envious of students having time to produce their own short.
I felt I had missed out on the thrill of just doing it yourself, and finding out all about the trials and tribulations along the way. I used the ToonBoom animation software and found that it was easy to use. It's laid out just like an traditional animator would expect. I was up and running very quickly.
At the time I had finished it, I only got the chance to run it in one festival (The Mill Valley Film Festival) before I got too busy to send it around the circuit.
I should really get it back on the festival circuit. If not, I'll find a way to stream it online.
It's a tragic story of a bunny and his carrot.
Here are some screenshots from the final film.

Yup, I used a wacom with toonboom. It worked really well. The lines automatically were made into vectors.

Hey Alina, I'll post some more up soon.
