Yay! 21st of April! My birthday! Woooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooo!
This film lasts four minutes, so you really will need to make some time to see it - but don't worry, it will be worth every second.
This is possibly my best cartoon so far. It is inspired by the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland, not the original book by Lewis Carol. I watched it because my mum wanted inspiration for her school production based on Alice, so I watched it with her to get inspiration for my animations. It turned out to inspire this cartoon about an acid trip that changes an LSD taker named Al forever (Believe me though, the Disney film is bullshit - there is virtually no plot).
This is my first real try at character development and character changes. Because internet films are only a few minutes long, if that, there isn't much time for either of these. My longest film before this (Ratty's week: Saturday) had too much action and too much being revealed about the characters to go into character changes beyond emotional feelings (changing from happy to sad, for instance). The difference with this is that it is a big physical character change, whilst longer films can go deeply into more subtle psychological changes.
At first, the LSD trip is funny, with him meeting lots of strange creatures such as a talking rabbit and the Mad Hatter. Many of the creatures he meets are, outside the acid trip, people, and hilarity ensues. But suddenly, he becomes unhappy when it all gets too much for him. The question is what will happen next?
I think that comedy-drama like this is the best genre of film, as it is one of the most diverse (both humour and dramatics are key elements in this genre, and you can also include action, horror, romance and several other things in it as well).
In terms of the animation, I think that the drawing is some of the best I've ever done, and I've used a lot of special effects that really add depth to the film, such as the queen's three-dimensional room. I feel very proud of it personally.
While making the film, I showed it to a lot of people, who thought that it was both funny and really well animated, so I thank them for all the support that they gave. One person suggested a lot of improvements, so... erm... thanks again!
