animation influences

May 24, 2010

selected videos that I have seen that have influenced me at some stage in the project

This piece made me realise that I could still use dark, grimy backgrounds with colourful ‘cel-shaded’ characters. Also, I like how the backgrounds are so detailed that they could be illustrations in themselves.

In this short, quirky little animation, I really liked the colours and the texture, the old feel to it, it resembles the naive/primitive art that I have been looking at by Rousseau and Gauguin.

This video has been very useful during the course of my animation/film learning experience. It has helped me alot with pre-production, and my narrative for film has improved since.

I adore this animation, the shapes of the characters and the narrative!  The animation is so simple, yet it just proves that narrative and illustration can be enough to carry a strong story. This film will be a constant influence to my animations!

The style of this animation is wonderful, the bold visually rich colours, it is refreshing to see brightly coloured animation that isn’t vector!

Glen Keane is a great tutor when it comes to animation, watching his videos has been a huge inspiration to me!
