For this film, I intend to draw and animate my characters using Flash and create the city landscape and backgrounds in Illustrator. I also hope to add watercolor and ink to my backgrounds so my characters can standout more in contrast from the colorful city.
The use of vivid and expressive colors will give this film an overall uplifting feeling and mood. I will animate my characters using the puppet style technique, which will give the overall aesthetic a smooth and clean feel.
I’ve decided to use Flash because I like the flat but expressive style Flash has to offer and I feel that I can express the characters emotions and body language with more success this way.
