This is my fourth animation, and the animation I am the most proud with.
After viewing my previous animations I kept thinking about the very basic visuals, so after 'The Swatter and the Fly' I setted out to create an animation that would put emphasis on the visuals as well as to improve upon the animation, utilizing techniques I was experienced with.
Meanwhile, in my Media class we were given the task to create a music video on a song that currently had no music video. I pondered on what song I should make a music video for, but from the get-go I immediately knew I wanted to create something that would showcase my skills as an artist as well as to show my intended art style, I also thought doing this will create a reaction from the audiences which was needed.
This was the first animation I made that used a storyboard, most of my animations are often made as I go, and I refused to use one, however my tutor demanded the class to make one.
So for one and a half lessons I'd just sit and think of grotesque and abstract imagery and ideas that I could include in my animation. After I had a clear idea of what I wanted to make, I still wondered what song I should make my video for. As I was listening through songs, I thought of creating a music video for Pendulum's Through the Loop, as in my opinion the track was very unique and stood out from the rest of the tracks Pendulum had made. I also thought it would be a good idea to create a tribute to Gene Wilder and Pendulum.
However, I didn't start production on the animation until September, because I had to finish off Bloody Blitz's 'Pokemon is Cancer' video. The video was really stressful for me, and to add more stress, I had loads more ideas and videos I had to make.
When starting progress in the animation I genuinely thought I was never going to finish the animation, but as soon as I was forced into production I worked on it 24/7 every week. And after 3 months the animation was finally complete, thankfully I set out to create a short version of the song because I thought a full version would've been impossible in the time set for me to complete the animation.
After seeing reactions from my friends and random people, I knew I made something great. And as I said earlier I'm very proud of how this turned out and the fact I even finished this animation.
I will be sure to create more in the style of this animation.
