This month I'm working on a flash flood sequence for a short-film, and am about to start on the water effects. Because resources are limited, the water animation will need to be stylized. Do you folks know of any 2D animated films that have found inventive ways of animating stylized water? I'd love to see how other people have approached this challenge.
(My task is to find a way to animate the flood with "force" and "fluidity," but with a minimal number of key frames. I'm working in Illustrator and Flash.)
