The author

I am a year 11 student at Cashmere High School. I have always enjoyed drawing & love how creative media can help us experience life in new & unexpected ways.

Growing up in Afghanistan, I had the privilege of experiencing different cultures & hearing stories from all around the world. Returning to NZ, I have continued to grow & develop & love to express my unique experiences & ideas through my art & animation.

Over the past few years, I have developed both my interest in traditional drawing & painting techniques, digital art & design. I began with stop motion animation & then progressed to traditional 2D & digital 2D/3D animation techniques. I appreciate a combination of frame by frame & rigged animation.

I have helped start & run an animation club at school (covering the 12 principles of animation). Enthusing others, participating in online groups & entering competitions, has helped me learn new technical elements & push my artistic designs to build a quirky collection of stories.

Overview

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.

Some of my other 2D & 3D animated stories are shown in the attached images.
