Beep & Tweet features robots, lasers, explosions and heart

Beep & Tweet is an ambitious animated short produced by Iron Feather Studios, a team of third-year students at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada. Their film follows a robot who takes a small bird under its wing, but must come to terms with the meaning of love and letting go. Beep & Tweet features complex cutout character rigs as well as impressive colour and compositing effects made using Toon Boom Harmony.
