Hyper Island Project for the Exploring Animation module.
The brief was simple, "start from a circle and end with a circle following the given sound track". Simon Jones from SR Partners wanted us to explore as many facets of animation as we could possibly come up with.
The Idea generation took about 2 days as all 5 members of the group seemed to have many ideas for approauching this task. Finally a commom theme was decided and different ideas were selected by each one to animate and explore.
I designed and animated Charles, The Dude (the second piece) and had a lot of fun doing it. The main idea was to mainly explore the sound and dance to the beat. I also tried some character design which is something I am very interested in.
The character was designed on photoshop and illustrator and then animated on after effects.
I would love to hear some feedback on the whole piece and on my one! I hope you enjoy it!
