For my Concepts in Motion class we were assigned a group project in which we all had to animate a season. The season I was given was summer. I chose to express the fun of video games during that special time of having no school.
Initially my concept was going to have a plot. It would open on a familiar 8-bit scene of a boy sleeping in his bed lazily during his summer vacation. The "God of Summer" (a.k.a. King of Cosmos from Katamari clad in swimming trunks) would appear and burn all his video games for not truly enjoying the season. The boy would then go on a quest to obtain more money for more video games, while inadvertently experiencing the world outside in its summery time.
The story, when stripped away and condensed into its essence, has been captured here in this piece as a fond reminiscence to classical gaming via Sonic the Hedgehog theme.
