I really liked the animation. It has the plot and dialog of Teletubbies, so watch on mute if you're not the giant baby from Pink Flamingos waiting for the Egg Man.
The dialogue is the best part, I wouldn't care about this otherwise. It's very absurdist comedy.

I heartily approve.. Not sure I'd label it that "good" per se, but it as weird as fuck! And obviously made with passion (and craziness!)

Also interesting animation.. Do ye reckon that is mo-cap applied to 2d meshes?
I have no involvement with this (I only know of this because I'm a Wes Anderson fan and follow Stephen Lea Sheppard from ROYAL TENENBAUMS on social media) but here's a behind-the-scenes with the actor for Tigtone.
I don't see any obvious signs of them filming his face for mocap while recording but for all I know they could have some system where they can do mouth mocap from a shakey hand-held camera.
The animation technique reminds me of this thing they had on the website for the 2004 or 2005 movie SWAT where you upload a simple photo, move a few reference points for your eyes, mouth, nose, eyebrows, and the edges of your face, type some text, and then type some text and your digitally-manipulated face would read it back in a digitized voice and there would be slight head movements where they could get some very basic 3D architecture from a 2D photo. I'd imagine this is a more refined and sophisticated version of that general technique.
Or TIGTONE might have used the same (or similar) animation software as ARCHER, which has a different visual style but similar character animation.
Ah, Red Letter Media did a video showing Babyhemyth Productions did indeed use some form of performance capture.
Looks kind of like they used the goo tool in photoshop to just move the relevant part of the image around for the illusion of motion.
Fun fact: the Wood Elf is voiced by Stephen Lea Sheppard, "Dudley Heisenbergen" from THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS and "Harris Trinsky" from FREAKS & GEEKS.

This taught me so much about ghost wizards.
