Chicxulub - My First Short Film!

Chicxulub from Christopher Purdin on Vimeo.

This is the story of an annoyed dromaeosaur who should learn to take it easy...because life is short!
I created this as a downtime project at my day job to help learn how to use Toon Boom software, which I did but nearly everything I did here was done completely the wrong way - I guess that's just how I learn. Enjoy!


  1. Mara wants to watch it over and over again. It is really cool! - Mara 4 years old

  2. Hey Chris!
    Had just spotted your work over at coldhardflash. Loved the animation, looking forward to more


  3. Is it weird that I just watched it 5 times in a row??

    Chris, this is so cool. I love how realistic/natural the movements of the dromaeosaur are -- well, I'm assuming because I've never met a dromaeosaur -- but the way he jumps from tree to tree, you've mastered that. I also love the part where it zooms back and you get that sharp-to-blurry effect as the treetops zoom past. And the humor/reality of it -- seeing the big picture, not getting hung up on a tiny rock in your shoe.

    Wonderful stuff. The boys are taking naps now but I'll definitely be showing them later. Great work.
