Animation

THE FOREST GUARDIAN

My final animation project, created in Adobe After Effects. I've always liked deer, and wanted to use one to tell a story. My thought process was having a lifeless environment, with a deer bringing life to it's surroundings. I was inspired by Studio Ghibli and Disney films.

CAT IN THE RAIN

Short animation using photo-manipulation, illustration and video footage. This had a more complex story, but sadly we had very tight time constraints.

Häagen-Dazs Commercial

Our group created a re-branding campaign for Häagen-Dazs ice cream. Based on our research, audiences showed disapproval of how fancy the brand's image was. We decided to bring Häagen-Dazs into a pretentious art gallery setting to make light of past campaigns. I came up with the slogan "Dazs Guud!", wrote the script for the commercial, animated, audio edited and did voice-overs for the crazy guy (Augustino) and the older woman (Marie). Our professor loved it, we used his voice in the end too! Software used: After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Audacity.

Spring Rain

I asked my followers which sketch they’d like to see animated, this was the winner; would love to do this again!

At the world's end

My first animation. I don’t think I conveyed the full complexity of this story. I wrote, painted and animated all of it 2 days before it was due. I was inspired by the game, “Journey”. Not many people catch the darker undertones of this story, I’ll leave a spoiler explaining.
