The Indian Wedding (Animated Documentary)
The narrative of this forty-second animation documentary is about an Indian girl talks about her experience of visiting a big Indian wedding. The documentary starts with a girl talking in front of a camera and she turns into wearing the Indian traditional wedding dress. The audience would follow and get into her memory of the story. At the ending, the story ends with the girl sits by a table of Indian foods.
The main goal for me in this project was the combination of 2D and 3D elements with a 2D hand-drawn looking. Most of the animation parts are hand-drawn digital image sequences. I wanted to show the Indian culture and how colourful the culture is, so I decided to have two different colour palettes; everything remains monochrome with simple line drawings until the Indian culture is revealed in the story.
Throwing Balls 3D Animation
This is my year three animation assignment, throwing balls. The character is a girl who tries to performance as a clown and juggling balls on the stage, but she fails. The stress and pressure make her decides to flee away from the stage.
This project was focusing on how to perform at least an emotion through the body language within a short narrative. The girl is confidence at the beginning, but through the narrative, she starts to feel shocked, nervous and shame, so she flees from the stage. At the ending, she suddenly realises the red nose is still on her, so she throws the clown's red nose away to imply that "I quit from this!".
