This is a two minutes classical animation short film made by Sarah Xu for her graduation project in Vancouver Film School.
It's a story about a scorned lover getting her revenge in a tale of romance and redemption. Kitty is a beautiful cabaret dancer with a broken heart, and she puts on quite a show of getting her revenge against Chester, her former beau.
The film was animated by traditional tools(pencil&paper) and clean up by brush pen. The backgrounds are water color.
This film was acknowledged by the Vancouver Film School festival scholarship program.
Mid-life Crisis is a story about an old crow, tired and run-down after a long day's work, who lets the feathers fly in an energetic dance performance. He gives the performance of a lifetime, as if he hasn't got a care in the world. This film is an expression that no matter how dark things may seem, there are always better times ahead.
This animation was commissioned for the Youtube series Smarter Every Day.
It's a small preview of the actual science shown in the video. And the graphs are scientifically accurate!
The dripping honey coils as it falls, forming the 'S' of the Smarter Every Day title. Destin suggested that I use pastel crayons to create a sticky honey texture, and I think it turned out great. Enjoy the video below, and a big thank you to Gordon McGladdery for the great soundtrack.
