ALBERT & EINSTEIN

Frames from a 30-second water safety film (for television & theatres) done for the California Department of Water Resources. The characters are pre-existing mascots of the department. The storyboard, character & background layout, animation and color design are mine. (1996, Baer Animation.)
(Special thanks to Amid Amidi for frame-grab assistance.)

It's 99 degrees and no shade when Einstein the Seagull, crazed with the heat, seeks relief in the unsafe waters of the aqueduct!

The bird drags his friend along on his date with danger!
Poor pebble! Smashed by the violent rushing waters of the aqueduct!
Albert is smart enough to notice the signs signaling Danger Ahead...
...which surf-bent Einstein carelessly smashes through...before an unfortunate slip sends both buddies tumbling thru the air and into the water's deadly clutches...
