It's been a while since my last post! This is mainly due to the fact that I was animating the entire time, and I didn't want to post any animation online until the film was entirely complete. By now, the animation has been complete for about a week and I had my final graduation presentation on Tuesday, August 25th. It went well: I passed with highest scores for all criteria! So I guess that brings an end to my time as an animation student. Now I am simply an unemployed animator with a European Media Master in Arts.
As for some final updates, here is the animation:
And I will also include a download link to my thesis, which I'm putting online for educational purposes. It is an investigation of animated shorts as an advertising medium and covers advertising history, animation's relevance to advertising, case studies on the Coca-Cola and Prada campaigns, and a chapter on my graduation animation. Here is the link:
Entertain Me: The Added Value of Animated Shorts as an Advertising Medium
And finally, I made some graphics for my final powerpoint presentation, symbolizing the evolution of the project. Just to make it a more entertaining experience for my teachers, I personified my project as a little blue creature. It worked: they said my project was very enjoyable!
