Jamero a Jamaican superhero who rise to the challenge of ending injustice, in a crime invested area where he resides. He work as a unit dispatcher police officer as normal citizen with his police scanner hooked out for criminal reports and when he receives any he suits up and get ready for action.
This is an animation done in my own art style, if you all notice by now that my drawing style basically remains the same throughout all my submissions. Yes I know that the animation could have been smoother but I do not wish to divert from my art style. The language is Jamaican, therefore the way the characters speak may be confusing to cultures that do not know of how Jamaican communicate; thus a subtitle is provided.
Challenges: originally I wanted the animation to be cartoony and children friendly, in relation to giving information on solving conflicts and giving real life lessons. For instance the idea of giving information on the effects of smoking, the drinking of alcohol, the ugliness of violence, showing of respect to peers and individuals I authority and perhaps ancient but meaningful proverbs with core values. Unfortunately, I decided to give it a test run for a more mature audience and to see the responses and then if it goes well, maybe next summer I wil pick it up again and carry out what I have initially plan for it.
The other challenge was that I had to do everything myself, the only thing I did not do was speak for the female characters, (they were done using robot voices). There were times when my emotions were at play and at times I felt depressed and just did not feel like to work on it. This allowed me to take practically two months to do because I work, I stop, I discard, I re-used and most of the time I become frustrated. This was mainly because I could not decide if I should test it as an animation for children or for a mature audience.
