My Process

When I first started working on this project I think the thing I was most excited about was creating a character. I found out a lot of things about the kind of character I made after trying to animate her. I found out that it is hard to convey certain emotions with a character without eyes,somehow she can see through her hair, all of the emotion is conveyed through her mouth and her actions. I was kind of fun to be limited like this and I think it has taught me a lot. After I created a character I made up a simple story she could be part of, a story that hopefully anyone could understand after seeing once. I think fruit falling from a tree can lead to a very simple story and that is why I chose to do this story. After the story I thought of the most simplistic method in which I could finish this. I thought of limited animation that is used in a lot of cartoons. I thought of anime and current flash animations like powerpuff girls and Johnny Test.

Weekend Update

This weekend I focused a lot of my attention on finishing my senior project. I finished shooting it and now all I have to do is a little bit of editing because I also started editing. I did not get to work on my Flash Final as much as I wanted but this weekend but I will be devoting all of my time this week and weekend to it.

Today

Today I plan to start animating my film even though I have a few puppets and backgrounds that I still want to work on. My animation is minimal so there wont be a lot to do but i figure I should get started soon. I hope to finish the whole thing by the end of this weekend, but that is just a goal for now.
