“...That was the original idea from day one - the elimination of the tweening process. But it is certainly not the only feature of Synfig that makes it unique. In addition to eliminating the tweening process, I also wanted Synfig to be used for pretty much every part of production except story-boarding and editing.”

This animated short is created by the group of 15-16 years old kids with open-source software: MyPaint (drawing), Pencil (frame-by-frame animation), Synfig Studio (tweening animation and compositing), Blender (editing), Remake (rendering). For eight months two times per week each kid attended the two-hour classes, where they were learning animation with opensource tools and developed their first animated short.
