The 3 D's in... "Barracks Break-in"

Let’s talk about The 3 D’s.

When I managed to make it into my first college choice last year, I sat in the one seat which was free at the time, and it was next to the two people that are featured in this animation you see here. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such comedic chemistry come from anyone but the three of us, and we managed to dream up this sitcom based off of the name my friend Connor gave us- “People should call us the 3 D’s”.

It was a crazy idea to make a parody of a children’s sitcom- a genre which we have all enjoyed in the past but now find to be comically atrocious. One thing that the shows tended to have in common were a few formulaic tropes spread across several characters, which we addressed comically.

As a proof of concept, I threw together a short animation set in an army barracks. It got third in its category.

The video!
