A MICA student project made in Lynn Tomlinson's Character Animation course. Looking at the film Revolver and early 1920's animation as guides, students designed complex cycles. We used a surrealist method of a random word generator to come up with two specific nouns (chicken and rubbish) and a concept (gravity). All students had to use two of these in their solution. Students all designed ideas for a main character, and we voted - selecting the alligator with bow-tie as the main subject of the film. Complex cycles have a repeated action with an accent that adds interest.
