This is the final project for one of my Media Arts animation classes. It is both stop motion, where I used a Nikon D40 camera, newspaper, and handmade paper, and rotoscoping of videos I shot of myself. I also created the sound design in Logic from sounds I recorded myself.

The inspiration and story for this animation were based on the feelings a person suffering from depression might feel. The visuals begin with a happy mood, and quickly degrade into a depressed, chaotic mix of emotions, then recover back into a normal, relieved mood.

Created using paper, filming equipment, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Logic.
