When I started coming up with concepts to do my senior film, No gag would stick with me,
and nothing that was short and flashy would stick with me either.
I knew I'd be working on this film for almost a year, so I wanted it to be something I could put my heart into. So I chose this.
Through this experience I learned many things, and tried my hand at a lot I've been wanting to work on. This film probably won't be in full color unless I'm able to find a group of people willing to work on it with me. But I'm fine with that. I was able to go through the process of developing ideas, scripting, draft, concept art, storyboards, animatics, laying out scenes, dealing with backgrounds, and directing music/scenes with other people. Plus I got to work at telling a story with no words.
I knew this was an ambitious project when I took it on, but I couldn't tell any other story except this one. I hope that you're able to connect with it in some way, because I know everyone has their own stories. For now I'm moving on, but I would like to revisit this in the future.
I felt kinda bad about putting that message there (the one below), so I watched the video.
OH MY GOSH THE FEELS!!!!! THE FEELS KILLED ME INSIDE!!!! I just about CRIED. (FYI, that NEVER happens. Like, EVER. At least, not during movies or in books.)
This is AMAZING!! I'd say I'd help you color it in, but I'm not sure I could without sobbing all the way through the process!! (And of course there's the small problem of not having time or abilities for this. )
This really is amazing. I wonder if you could win a short film award for stuff like this in college or something?
in all seriousness though, this came out fantastic. A well paced narrative and you really got to connect with the two children as well. The reaction to the older kid seeing his friend was just tops. It had a whole slew of feelings in those frames that really hit you right in the feels lol. Seriously some great work!
I'm SO happy that you've finished MCAD! I wish that Dee Jay and I had more time bothering you and Sherri (lol!) and I'm super looking forward to seeing the bad-assery you'll create now with no restraints or classes to bog you down.
It's such an amazing feeling not to have school. Like this is the first summer in my lifetime really that I won't be going to school after the warmest months are over, and it's just so liberating. I can't wait to see what happens either.
Congratulations on making it so far! I hope you keep moving forward with ambition and passion
