Video Reference: Afterworld
My foray through YouTube brought me to Afterworld: an animated serial. Stylistically, this is what I am trying to achive: the gloomy ambience; the earthy color palette. Another thing that I noticed was that the characters do not move much. Most of the animation is done using Video Effects and Transitions. As I mentioned before, although the Heidi Ott dolls hold their poses well, getting convincingly realistic motion out of them will be difficult. So, my lesson from Afterworld: it isn't always necessary to have the characters moving in order to tell a compelling story.
