Das Animatic visualisiert die gleichnamige und wohl bekannteste japanische Legende URASHIMA TARO. Seit ungefähr 713 n. Chr. entwickelte sich diese von einer herzzerreißenden Liebesgeschichte zu einem fatalen Besuch des legendären Drachenpalastes am Grund des Meeres. Das Animatic vereint beides und legt den Fokus auf die Emotionen der Charaktere. Es wurde insbesondere Wert darauf gelegt, die Erzählung aus sowohl japanischer als auch westlicher Perspektive ansprechend zu gestalten – symbolisch wie ästhetisch.
I am a human that draws pictures.
Balancing my studies with my part time job and quality time for myself and friends. It's rather challenging to take breaks, but they are extremely important. For every hour you take a break, you get 2 hours worth of work done in the next half hour. But it's difficult nonetheless.
My friends, family, Japanese culture, and maybe a few filmmakers: Hayao Miyazaki, Robert Williams, and Glen Keane.
Optimism, then despair. Rinse and repeat for about 10,000 times until it's done, then start worrying about the next project. No, but seriously, it's hard for me to balance between optimism and realism sometimes. But depending on the project, I usally start with a foggy to clear vision in my head and either write a concept or just start right away (like with this project). Then I make a plan for myself, including rough timeframes for when a bigger milestone has to be finished. Otherwise I set smaller goals throughout the week and adjust when needed.
I've learned quite alot. I remember when I started I didn't even know AfterEffects existed. Now I'm juggling that in addition to Photoshop, Premiere, Audition, InDesign, Illustrator, Procreate, and other programs. I've also gained a lot more confidence which I would consider the most important aspect of any field of study, especially art.
I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life after finishing school, other than “something with media”. When I found out about this program, it was advertised to me as “the program for people who don't know what to do with their life yet, other than something with media”. So yeah... I might have a slightly better idea of what to do with my life now.
