"Documentary" animation - Barter: macbook
The assignment for this project was to make a documentary animation. And by documentary, really just anything based on something true in real life. I decided to go experimental with this: chose to animate a craigslist posting I found (it's quite hilarious, see it here), and use a medium you would usually never consider using for animation: vine charcoal. And of course, due to time constraints, I editted and cut it down shorter than the original list.
So yeah, very challenging project, and very happy I pulled it off. I was also learning how to use Final Cut while doing this, so if the editting looks a bit amateur-ish, it is.
I'm starting to realize that I like the rough loose drawing quality in my work. Maybe I'll keep at it, who knows.
