The skull is called Stuart and the main character is currently called Colin, but this may change if I come up with a better name. I'm actually going to have dialogue in this animation and I'm planning to send the script to a friend overseas for the voice-overs. The learning part if this project is the creation of smoke with real-world objects rather than drawing it in with Photoshop. I'm not sure how this will work out.
The animation doesn't have a title yet, but it will probably be something like "Colin and the big book of Magic". The scene in the set is in Colin's loft apartment. I hope to start filming next weekend.
