The guys at Flying Duck Studio Lab wanted me to come up with an animation to promote their launch. They said I could make whatever I wanted as long as it was loosely connected to either the logo or their ethos. A common autocorrect for “f*ck” is “duck” so I decided to play on that. There’s a funny image I have seen on the internet about a Field of f*cks, and how this person has none to give. It always makes me chuckle, so I thought I would use this as my inspiration for this animation.
I originally thought of a sombre setting where there was an old and tired farmer who owned a lot of ducks. A young peppy customer treks across fields to buy a duck from him, but he has none to give. He doesn’t know where they’ve gone. It turns out all the talented ducks have left to join Flying Duck Studio Lab.
