Hope – My First Animation

Hello y’all 🙂

So this past week has been pretty busy (what else is new) because my summer courses started last week… and I already have an assignment finished… OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The assignment is called THE HERO’S JOURNEY

CREATIVE BRIEF

Provide 12—15 storyboards which visualize the short story you’ve crafted. This can be the story you started in class or a completely new tale.

You may use the provided storyboard template to sketch out your narrative. Below each frame you can choose to include a description of the physical environment (set design/location, time of day, interior [IN:] exterior [EXT:]), an/or description of the spatial quality of the frame (staging, camera angle and any other element from your shotlist).

PRESENTATION
Storyboards will be submitted in digital format for review on 21.

TO CONSIDER

• Progression. Where does the story begin? Where does it end? What creates the most drama? Does your protagonist journey from Orphan–Wanderer–Warrior–Martyr?

• Use your senses. How do you convey the ambiance or mood one would experience while exploring this place?

• Do not be afraid to experiment – use humour, surprise, be spontaneous, embrace chaos.

• Keep it simple.

 

With this brief, I began the storyboarding process:

Basically, I planned out what each clip would look like and how the story will progress.

After, it was time to create the characters and animate them:

Now, finally, here’s the final animation:

I can’t wait to see what the next assignment will be 🙂

 

 

New Girl

Last summer, I made a blog post about my Black Swan alter ego drawing I completed for my Grade 12 Art class. Now, after much thought and watching of tv, I have discovered in myself another alter ego…

Jess from the show New Girl

Jess from New Girl

With her bubbly, off-beat personality (as well as her outfits), I can see similar traits within myself.
With that being said, today I got my hair done and decided to get bangs! (Funnily enough, sort of the same as Jess’s…)

So, here is me being the New Girl!

And there you have it! Maybe I’ll discover more alter egos… I seem to be getting them mainly from watching tv… good excuse to turn on the tube if you ask me 🙂
