This is a 1 minute rotoscope animation that I had to create for my experimental animation project. I wanted to experiment with rotoscoping in photoshop CS5 so I came up with the idea of having a character being overcome by the animation spreading from the necklace that he is wearing. Originally the character was supposed to find the neckless lying in a rock pool but this would have extended the final piece beyond the given 1 minute. Instead I decided to experiment with the concept that the animation is part of the characters imagination shown through the harsh shadows. During the characters fight to break free of the animation there is no animation being shadowed behind him representing the idea that the fight is all in his imagination.
