Despite the misleading title, I’ve been doing some research based on our Elimination project, looking at different animation using them as inspiration for new ideas.

I like this little 30 Second animation, the animation is very well done and it’s very simplistic, which is comforting to me because it’s something that can be very easily do if our group wanted to use sweets as characters of our animation. Plus the noises that the sweets make is really funny.

I also began to look at some PESfilm animations which are really really cool. I have to say that in each video the animation is very well done and simple, e.g. in western spaghetti it’s a simple idea of someone making spaghetti but because of the use of different random objects like tin foil to represent oil or when the Rubix was chopped up by a knife, it was dissected into smaller rubix cubes.

The last video, is a video that was recommended by Andy by an Animator called Charles Huettner. The animation looks beautiful and I really like the style of the characters. The story I think was a little slow at the beginning but it did picked after you realise that the red characters are the ghosts of people who died, and I also like when the 2 friends jump through the ghosts they witness how that person died. There’s also a bit where it shows the male friend falling while the female friend goes through another ghost, but instead of following the male, it continues the female having fun.
