Poor Wayne. So incredibly charming and pink, but filled with such a strange, deluded sense of the world that's it's kind of endearing. Animated by Aran Quinn with co-direction by Jeffrey dates, Wayne was inspired by a poem by Kenn Nesbitt, which is narrated throughout the short.
Absolutely loved the style of the short, which seems to be a mix of CG and hand animation with some really playful shaders that make Wayne look like he was filled in with a crude painted style for each frame. The birds were animated in Flash, while Wayne was created using a mix of XSI, Maya and Zbrush.
