The Little Speckled Hen


Create an animated short based on a little-known story/myth from around the world.


The Little Speckled Hen. A story about how speckled hens got their speckles. Design the characters. Animate them. Write Script. Write Score. Record vocals. Make sound effects.


The video ended up a little long and drawn out but it was fun to make! I designed the characters in Illustrator and brought them straight into After Effects for animating. Skipped flash/Animate entirely this time. I got my SO to voice the title character because she loves chickens. While I may have lent my voice to the rest of the characters. I also tried to be a foley artist and make sound effects as well as did the music. Wow, this is kind of an embarrassing project. Well, enjoy.
