My 17-minute cartoon, The Flying Moose, is entering post production and I’m working on the opening credits and theme music.
A rough edit of these opening credits with the music montage is now posted on this site’s home page.
Since the cartoon takes place in 1903 (the invention of the airplane), I tried to give the credits an old time feel with both an old time piano soundtrack and old looking photographs as backgrounds under the credits.
For the old photographs, I found some beautiful old ‘Cabinet Card’ photographs, took their paper frames, and then inserted actual stills from the cartoon in an aged overlay look.
The character designs were all done by me, and the backgrounds were all done by a very talented artist named Joe Lastowski.
Without further ado, here are 7 film stills culled from the cartoon and used as opening credits photo-backgrounds:
