Design for Production: Animation

Submitting my homework for Finishing. Thank you Michael for the detailed tutorials and for taking us through the process.

Wow, it's taken me a while to get to this point. I found after the first course that my whole concept wasn't really solid enough to base a full length animation off of so I went back to square one.

As a comet flys through the cosmos we see the elements of existence start to coalese into spheres reflecting each of those elements, fire, life, shadow etc.

The best class I've ever had.

CATUÇABA is the first of a series of four short animated filmes that focus on different emotions, this one represents goodness and hope. It has a personal narrative which shows that even the darkest of times do not last forever and goodness always has the potential to be back in our lives, even when it seems impossible.
