It's way back the time when I was studying an University in London. and that was my final project. At that time, new media was kind of a hot topic. Many students were eager to picking up new computing graphic and design technologies. They'd done everything by Flash, After Effects, Illustration or etc to make animation. All of a sudden, we seemed to forget the good old technique like drawing on frames by frames to give animation a touch of humanity.
Therefore, I came up with this simple concept. A drop of dry paint from a forgotten paint brush tried so hard to escape from a dark room, running toward the sunlight and giving a little touch of colour for everything that we'd ever seen everyday in our life but never been noticed cause we're mostly too blind and busy to notice something small and normal.
It's actually a no budget production. The whole film was made by myself alone in my bedroom with my Sony handy DV camera and two studying lamps. I did paint on each pictures printed out on recycling scrap papers.
I'm afraid it's not that environmental friendly, but that surely gave it a look of nostalgia.
and that also kicked off my small project series.
