The Winds of Change

This is 1 in a series of 4 2D animations that were produced in my first year of my Digital Media Design degree. These 4 animations were produced in 2008 and are not representative of my current (and hopefully vastly improved) skillset. I wanted to include them on my site because I love these animations & had a lot of fun creating them, which I hope shows in the final products!

Year: 2008 – Q4
Client: Swinburne University of Technology

The 4th and final animation I produced in my first year of my Digital Media Design degree. I love being able to share this animation now! I was given almost free reign with the brief for this project. It had to be 30 seconds long and a 2D animation, but that was about it.

I wanted to make a mock advertisement for Connex trains (now Metro Trains Melbourne) and their extremely crowded carriages which I honestly believed they were doing nothing sensible to improve upon!

The final animation is now included in the LODE archives. You can click the button below and it will open the animation in a new browser window.

Please note that this animation was created in 2008, and you will need Adobe Flash to view it!

The archive entry for this project also includes some extra behind the scenes content.

There is an early animatic of the animation, which was created in Flash using scanned-storyboard illustrations and a very early sound edit. You can click the image below and it will open the animation in a new browser window.

I have also included a .pdf of my workbook for this project. I tried to create a workbook for all of my animations & multimedia projects in Uni (and it was often a requirement).
This workbook contains a comprehensive overview of the whole project, including the brief, concepts, storyboards, inspiration, production workflow and more.
