oh my god this is sooooooo gooood, !! how in the world did you make that piano!!

Hey Aaron,

Thanks! I actually just wrote someone else about the piano. The piano was a lot of trial and error and I honestly had to hold my breath while animating. I drilled tiny holes in the back of all the keys and connected them with a wire. Then I had them resting on a dowel. Problem was when I pushed down one key the surrounding ones also went down. I wound up locking down all the keys not being played and manipulated the keys from the back. I'm sure there is a better way to go about it and wish I had had a more secure way though!

This is reallly beautiful. I liked the roll-down hill reference to Nightmare Before Christmas. You have a great sense of depth to your sets and your lighting is superb!

To secure your piano keys in any position, you can use stikki wax (would probably work best from behind). Just a little ball is all it takes to fix things down impermanently.
