Studying in the Animation Residency at CalArts was truly a dream come true! We completed modules in Design, Life Drawing and Story for animation.
Here follows a set of beat-boards and colour scripting for a project where I was given three items, (a character, a prop and a setting), and had to create a simple story pitch from them. My three were:
– Vietnamese War Veteren
– A Chanel handbag
– An LA nightclub
From these, I came up with “Fake It Til You Make It”; a short story about a gold-digging dancer who gets fooled by an American soldier.
Life Drawing at CalArts was a brand new experience for me. We drew with our paper on the floor, giving a completely different perspective (literally and metaphorically!) to what I’m used to. Check out a small selection:
