This “Making of” book contains all the research and development done for “Mother’s Day”, an animation

based of a motivational short story. This book will explore the different areas which helped create the final outcome. “The animations’ target audience is created for anyone of any age as the moral within the piece is a universal truth”. - L Stewart

When creating “Mother’s Day” France was the main influence. I researched French culture and design to help create the stylised art direction.

Bio:

René is an office worker. He has worked in the same job, in the same building, in the same cubical for the last 8 years running on automatic for the last 7.
The only time he feels happiness is when he glances at the only picture on his desk, of him and his mother. He has not seen his mother since he started working there. The only communication they have is when he sends her a card for Mother’s Day.

Renés’ character took a series of stages until a final design was chosen. Originally René was to be a gangster so not only did his personality take a bit of changing but so did his appearance.

The photograph René has of him and his mother is of when he was a child. So creating a kid version of René was necessary.
