This project is provided by the course Animation in 2D, held at Uppsala University.
In this project I created a short animated movie using Adobe Animate CC. The project included theory and practical application in animation techniques, manuscript, storyboards and dramaturgy.
I chose to make a movie about a subject that I care about - the impact of plastic on the ocean. I found my inspiration from own experiences, the movie Surf's Up and the Seabin project, for cleaner ocean.
Results & Challenges
The result is the movie below. The biggest challenge was to simplify the animation and effects as much as possible when I mentally put myself on a high level at the beginning. I realized that animation requires a lot of time and patience. Getting my first walk cycle right was difficult but most of the problems I encountered were solved by simplifying the animation. Which created a much better flow in the film.
