-Thanks for the reviews
- I ended up getting a B for this. To be honest my preliminary sketchbook was awful though.
school art project 2007-2008, and my last, hope you enjoy it.

topic was 'modern design & animation', decided to do a mock interview style short cartoon about the nature of art (although the interviews are spontaneous and unrehearsed). I thought the best way to get funny/watchable answers at short notice would be to probe into the minds of 11 year old kids.

my target was to create expressive character designs and accompany them with equally emotive body language and movement. my main focus in this was to make something that - aesthetically - looked completely different than anything i had done before, hence my first time using live-action as a primary medium. i rented a HD video camera for that but unfortunately only a standard tape so it came out averagey and i wasted money... oh well.

please enjoy!

Fabulous! Truly Creative!

An amazing combination of real life and animation. I loved how you made the animations, however, seem so real, like actual people getting interviewed, while still having that sense that they are, still, animations. This was a fabulous piece of work, and I enjoyed it alot! The Documentary-Like concept of this movie hooked my interest than just a simple fictional movie. Like I said, the combination of real life and animation was great. Please keep up the amazing and hard work. 10/10. 5/5.

Horribly lame

That was just lame. all it was, was little kids talking about art, very boring.
You have some great animation skills, make something that is more mature, something creepy/scary, dont waste it on little kids.

Violence is more mature than artistic discussion??
