Theme

My working title is “neon skyline”, which I think instantly creates an image in your imagination of an exotic, futuristic neon city. I produced an animation inspired by the course I am going onto next year, games art. I created an animation piece that is an opening scene for a section of game play in a dystopian futuristic city.  A big part of this project will be looking at world design and character designs and how I want my viewer to interpret these. I made the 4 sets for my animation physically using recycled materials like cardboard and coffee stirrers and anything I could find around my house. By making the sets physically, I was able to further my understanding of model making and how to translate my 2d sketches into a physical 3d landscape. After filming my sets and editing them together I then used photoshop to animate my character digitally on top. I have taught myself a lot with this project and I am very pleased with the outcome.

I created the sets using cardboard, this city street set ended up being about 4ft long.

When designing the tube station I took lots of inspiration from the London underground to give the environment a familiar feeling for the audience.

I used my street diorama as the view out of the window to create depth in the shot.

To show the change of time and atmosphere, I used neon pinks and blues in style of the vaporwave aesthetic.
