Here is the finished After Effects animation project based on Nelson Mandela. It's a basic narrative acting as a representation of his incarceration, how he fought for what he believed in, and two of his famous quotations (which can be found in the film.) The creature is my interpretation of a South African mythological creature called a tikoloshe.
Soundtrack: Extract from "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley, as read by Morgan Freeman
Footage: Clip from "Mandela: Message of Forgiveness - The Making of Mandela"
Animation and designs by Emily Whittingham
