A collection of student work produced last year. The video includes animation work from Freshmen to Seniors. The animations were created using a variety of software including; After Effects, Cinema 4D, Nuke, DragonFrame, and the Adobe Suite of software.
Growing up in a conservative framework, the main character tries to break free. He gravitated towards the kids at school that were complete opposites of what his parents believed to be ideal company, thus representing the individual’s navigation through loss, belonging and identity. As the animation develops, the viewer discovers that the company he so longed to be part of was taken from him. Narrating the piece as a free verse poem using his friend’s memories and experiences along with his own, he begins to build visual representations of his experiences. (Notice: Use of Adult Language.)
