Panop Koonwat “Cupidiculous”
Bangkok native and former TBWA Thailand art director, Panop Koonwat weaves 2D cel and 3D animation techniques into a riveting short for his School of Visual Arts MFA thesis film, wrapping his message about “overpopulation, overconsumption and global warming” into a manic/comic tale starring Adam and Eve and Cupid.
“Most characters and elements have been done in 3D but rendered as 2D flat vector look with poppy pastel, splashy and heightened color schemes. Then added more 2D liquid speed lines by drawing frame by frame. Software: Cinema 4D/ Toonboom/ After Effects.”
