P6 – Final Project

I decided I wanted to push myself and do a short 2D animation. I wasn’t sure if it was possible to do in such a short time by myself, so I spent three hours doing a quick animatic of the entire sequence to gauge the amount of work. In hindsight, the animatic masked how much work this would really take. In the end, the animation is stiff and messy, and the composition and flow of shots were done on the fly to allow more drawing time.

The end result is something I can see the flaws in, yet I hold pride in being able to complete something of this nature by myself when I had little experience in making videos or lengthy animation.

Software used:

Adobe Photoshop (Windows) – animation and graphic design

Adobe Premiere (Windows) – video, audio compilation and video effects

Procreate (iOS) – bulk of character animation
