Minor Project Proposal

Joey Ku

The Project
• Animated short aiming to be around 1-2 minutes long. • Animated short that is making an awareness of extinct wildlife similar to the WWF campaign.

Areas of study
• The areas of study in this project will include: • Character design • Storyboard • Animatic and Pre-Vis • Character Modelling, Rigging and Skinning • Animation

Potential Ideas
• Development on preproduction and animation • Starting point would be looking at extinct animals between the 17th and the 19th century, and each one would represent land, sea, air and insect. • The animals would be simple but art style is influenced by Charley Harper and Eric Carle.

Logline:
Vibrant animals, big and small roamed over the grey world of land, sea and air, however time is running out.

Outcome
For my minor project, I would like to make the animation to visually tell the story itself whilst going along with the music to Camille Saint-Saëns’s “The Carnival of the Animals- Finale” piece. I also aim to have the animation create a visual impact within the story.

Goals
• To improve my 2D and 3D animation skills • Develop my skills in telling stories visually • Improve my skills on editing animatic, pre-vis and the animation
