MPC: “Sunny and Steve – Enjoy the Sweets”

Just in time for Easter weekend, “Sunny and Steve” from MPC’s NY office has a look as cute and cuddly as its rascally rabbit antagonist.

From MPC’s site:

[MPC] set out to create the distinctive look of the animation by instilling a retro palette that visually represents each character’s personality and correlates perfectly with the handmade office setting, including the set build, which was created from scrap cloth, styrofoam, and wood, as well as the character’s puppet-like limbs, the boss’s facial mole, Sunny’s vexing whiskers, and Steve’s slight scar.

  • Justin

    Love the rabbit animation, lots of funny little moves

  • is this 100% stop motion? excuse my ignorance.

    • No, my understanding is that the set is physical but everything else is CG.

      • is that so? well thats kind of lame.

        • Pedro Soto
