An animation that explores the key worries and concerns from people with serious health conditions, in order to help them plan for the future and make everlasting memories with the people they love.
Created entirely using After Effects, this animation has taken a total of 6 months to produce - from script, storyboard, animatic, and the final.
A paper-cut, stop motion animation depicting a man's struggle to combat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which emerges into his daily routine. PTSD is internal, and cannot be seen by anyone passing by. This was created in an attempt to visually communicate what PTSD feels like and to spread awareness about the disorder.
The animation was inspired from attending an exclusive screening of Dunkirk with my Uncle, who suffers with PTSD. Throughout the film, I noticed that some of the veterans in the audience had to leave the cinema because of how intense the film was. This had an enormous emotional impact on me, which inspired me to make the animation. My uncle described it to me as “a sudden cloud that appears when you’re least expecting it”.
I'm Cold and Sad
A short stop-motion animation depicting a young boy living in poverty, as his world around him falls apart. This was inspired by a poem I read, which was written by a young child.
This was completed through a combination of paper cut stop motion and digital animation. The young boy was made from black card and acted as a puppet. The backgrounds were created using collected textures and photos which were then collated in Photoshop.
This was produced with the intention of being shared by the End Child Poverty Coalition, in order to spread awareness of child poverty in the UK.
One Rainy Night
A short tester for a planned project, which is based around aspect-to-aspect narrative. The character was created in Adobe Illustrator which was then imported into After effects. From there, I separated the layers and used keyframe animation to create the movement.
I like the idea of using shots of different objects within a location to help build a story, so that the viewer can put the pieces together to construct the narrative.
