Karnival is a series of super-short animated pieces created by Jun seo Hahm at Portland commercial studio Bent Image Lab. The first two episodes are up at Karnival.tv with additional episodes debuting every two weeks.
The films defy easy categorization though I thought the first couple pieces were amusing and original bits of animation. The characters have a strong 3D aesthetic but the films are actually “hand-drawn digital vectorized 2D animation,” according to the filmmaker.
Directed by Jun Seo Hahm, these cute, creepy, and utterly mad micro-shorts have been written about in Motionographer, Cartoon Brew, and many others throughout the animation world for their originality of style and story. Jun's work has screened at a number of international film festivals, and his Karnival series continues to receive praise for it's unique vision.
KARNIVAL is a very short 10 episodes of animation series mainly about unexpectable behaviors of unique characters. Karnival was screended at; Indie-AniFest, Pictoplasma's Character in Motion, SICAF
