final animaticThis is my part of the final animatic, this is part three of a four part animation depicting a story describing the life of a person with autism, the original audio track had a man, whose job was to care for autistic people, giving his observations of autistic people, looking at how they think, work and communicate.

After some experiments with editing the track, we decided to cut the soundtrack up so that it changed from a linear story to a jumpy, elastic, eccentric piece that any person who had not heard the original would not understand it at all, it is with some study and in depth analysis that a person would understand the meaning of the track, which itself is quite clear, in that we cut it like this to portray the same thinking pattern of and autistic person.

In parts of my  animatic, i have mirrored this theme, in the way that the images you see move swiftly, showing bold, bright colours. The way i cut the scenes is very similar to the way we cut the audio track.

Overall i think that the animation works well in portraying the subject or the theme. the only downside i have on my animation is that my drawings and and objects are very bland and show little heart or enthusiasm.




This was was my first idea for a character in the animation, he was going to be in segments of the animation where there was no sound, after some consideration i decided to change my mind and have him at parts where the character would say something, and use a lip sync method to show this, but after looking in what i had created i decided to scrap the character all together as he fit into the style of the rest of the animation.


scream-rotoscopethis is a test for the rotoscoping test, however i have created this sequence to also fit into my final animatic, a small section of this piece will be played over the section of the soundtrack where the narrator say: “SCREAMING’.

this was originally going to be a line piece, no colour, but i decided to add bright, bold colours with more animated objects to portray the mood and electricity of the segment.




This sequence will played over the part of the soundtrack where the narrator says: ‘Banana, Banana, Banana…’.

for this image i created each part of the man separately on different layers so that i could use them in after effects or flash to animate him.

this character will be used for the “routine” section of the soundtrack.

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short and won the 2009 Emmy for ‘New Approaches’ (making it the first film to win an Emmy on behalf of the internet).
