Crabs - An Animation By Colin Leet

 

Crabs Animation From 2008

Claymating Crabs come out of the sea for their yearly mating rituals. After the initial matching there is an imbalance in numbers of each sex and the remaining two male crabs must fight to win their prize. When the battle is won, another female crab comes out of the sea. She disavows the losing crab and instead goes after the other, now matched, male. Thus she starts the matching rituals again, only this time between the two females instead. Animated first in clay, the computer generated background and scenery were later add to make a breath and depth of stage that would not be possible on an actual set.

This video was made in part at Detroit Area Film and Television's Student Animation Workshop in 2008.
