I'm about halfway there with my film 'The Island' and thought to give you some information about it!
The film is about a puppet who is trapped on an island. Her job is to throw paper planes to her neighbours, but she would rather swim around in the ocean. One night, she escapes, but the ocean is not what she imagined it would be.
I'm making this film as a graduation project for my Master's degree in Animation. Because I am trained as an illustrator, I like to draw all the elements from the film first in Photoshop. I then animate them using a cut-out technique in After Effects. So far, it works really well!
I will present my film during the Master Exhibition at my school, the AKV St. Joost in Breda, the Netherlands. It will be held from the 1st to the 7th of September, 2016. Join the fun!
