I intend to continue from where I left of in Folio 1 in terms of making a a series of short animated vignettes related to food.
I will use this opportunity to better my skills in Toon Boom Harmony.
By learning how to make more fluid, seamless animations, this process will help me with larger animation projects in the future.
I will also be incorporating sound into my animations.
Context | Field
My work sits within the fields of 2D animation, illustration, and sound effects.
Bloody Dairy by Min Liu: My end goal would be a series of short animation vignettes in the likes of this short film (https://vimeo.com/137752403)
Food Play by Reactiv: This short 3D film is a joyful and experimental juxtaposition of food and sports. It is similar to the work that I’m trying to do, which is also about fun food visuals with a vibrant, happy color scheme. (https://vimeo.com/316177190)
Fruit Ninja by Halfbrick Studios: I'd like to mention this game as although it is a game and not an animation or film, it has an animation style that I'd like to emulate, and also the movement of the food slices as well as the sound effects are things I'd like to note.
Sausage Party (2016) directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan, animated by NitrogenStudios: This movie is quite inappropriate and rated R, but it is a food animated film that follows the journey of an existential sausage in a supermarket. It's portrayal of humor through animated food is something I'd like to note.
I will continue to create a new short animation loop each week, as well as improve upon my previous work in Folio 1.
I will be using Adobe Animate and Toon Boom Harmony to see which one suits my practice best. I also plan to experiment with Blender's 2D animation.
I will be sketching out my ideas, animating them, and adding sound effects.
Production | Tools
Softwares I will be using: Procreate, Toon Boom Harmony, Animate, Blender
I plan to follow a schedule wherein each week I will create an additional animated vignette according to the theme, fully colored in and with sound added to it.
The end goal is to create a short series of animated loops/vignettes that are tied together under the umbrella theme of "quirky food"
