The Ballad of Nessie (2011) | exploratory sketches - Andreas Deja

Each animator gets just a few scenes to animate, and the project is done. Nessie (under six minutes long) was animated by Ruben Aquino, Dale Baer, Randy Haycock, Mark Henn and myself.

Stevie Wermers-Skelton came up with film’s concept, and Kevin Deters joined her to co-direct.

We enjoyed working on simple, cartoony material again that was inspired by some of the Disney shorts from the 1950s. - Deja
