Using a variety of computer animation techniques, Dumb Bolts began as a freeform exercise in story and visual development between the two of us collaborators... CLINT-E and BOTSMITH. The process was inspired by Clint-E's sketches lined out on a wall where captions were then added by Botsmith with Post-it notes. The story of three scientists and their robot creations begins. The imagery is painted in Photoshop and animated with After Effects.
