Early Inspirations

Our class theme for the 15 Second Animation was “Hard/Soft”

At the beginning, my group had no idea what kind of animation we were going to make. Would it be a comedy or an atmospheric film? We had no idea. We found a bunch of short animations on the internet and attempted to decide on a style/genre for our animation.

Our favourite of the short animations we found (out of this short list) was Rollin’ Wild. We loved the very mundane natural scenarios suddenly made funny by making everyone a ball.

We decided to go down the comedy route.
