Director Statement

The concept phase was to base my animation off of 3 of 10 pictures I drew in class under the theme of "water," and have them link together with creative transitions. My 3 were pictures of "Water Flowing," "Water Bending," and "Water Waves." Despite my general weakness with hand drawn animation, I have decided to use this format of hand-drawing each individual frame of the animation since one of my goals was to avoid re-using parts of the animation in any circumstance. And what better way to prove that than the old fashioned way. I also took this opportunity to try some camera movements with the hand drawn method to give myself a challenge. All in a short time-span of two weeks.
