Three Short Stories:
In these three unique stories, I demonstrate a few of the animation styles I have experimented with.
(1) Jack & Jill: A young girl wakes to a frosty night adventure. Jack Frost finds in Jill a friend that warms his frozen heart.
In this animation, I have tried to capture the innocence & wonder of a snow-filled scene & to show how the love of a child's heart can thaw the most frosty soul.
(2) Le Château de la Souris (The Mouse's Castle): My inspiration for this came from the French animation "Ernest & Celestine". I used richly coloured backgrounds throughout this animation to create a sense of wonder & warmth.
(3) Curiosity: Curiosity killed the cat, but some cats are more curious than others. I focused on creating an emotive facial rig for this unfortunate feline character, playing on the concept of a cat with nine lives & that butterflies are not always as innocent as they appear.
