Documentary Animation Film

As I mentioned before, this semester I took a documentary animation class at the USC School of Cinematic Arts (ya know, the George Lucas school).

We each told a true personal story, and then we voted on whose story we wanted to animate. The story we chose takes place in Gainesville, Fla., at a not-so-typical college party with a not-so-typical townie neighbor.

We decided to draw everything by hand, the old-fashioned way. Between some pro animators and some newbies like me, we decided we could achieve the most consistent aesthetic by making it sloppy (this meant some of us used our non-dominant hands). So here is the work of 13 animator/directors:

I drew the hair growing and the mouth in the beginning, the title and the end credits (too shy to try to do a party scene).

We all got to help with foley, making the sound effects, which I never knew much about, but it’s made me hypersensitive to effects that aren’t EQed or synced up right. It’s a curse!

    That is really cool! I’m really impressed with how well everything came out using a non-dominant hand. And it really is consistent. Great job.
