‘WAKE UP’ SMILE FOR LONDON 2010 SHORTLISTED FILM
London (December 2010)
The ‘Smile For London’ competition searched for ten 20 second animations to screen on the London Underground platform screens as an initiative to bring a little cheer to the morning commute. My film ‘Wake Up’ made the shortlisted 50, which was great given that this was not long after I had graduated. For this I wanted to create a really loose, scratchy and boiling line style, and at the time I only had access to Flash. I modelled a 3D background based on my bedroom at the time in Softimate XSI which I had a little knowledge in, and animated over the exported footage in Flash to match the loose animation of the foreground. I thought that designing this in greyscale might help set it apart from some of the other submissions and compliment the ‘handdrawn’ look I was going for.
