Digbeth Interview

This is a video footage of the interview me and my friend Riz made of a guy who leases retail space for the custard factory. He has worked most of his life in Digbeth and knows alot of it. He has talked about his insight about the future, past and present of Digbeth and what kind of people mostly hang out with each other etc...

I was thinking maybe if I was to use the audio of the interview and maybe us it as a voice over our animation and it should look like the animation below which looks more like a well developed brain storm with striking visuals which makes it amusing to the audience.

These are more photographs I've gathered for my research by looking more into graffiti's 

Animation intro tests

This is a test on how simple our animation is going to look like. this can be done in many different ways such as using adobe flash, after effects, toon boom, but I have made this using photoshop. I have chosen to use photoshop because I am still in the learning stage using other programs, I used this because its easier for me at the moment.

As you can see the art style is very simple which would be very easy for us animators to animate and also having simple art style is also good which is easy to get the message across the viewers. This sort of art style was inspired form the animation "This is You" and intro from "Juno" which are very graphic, with soft light pastel colours which is eye friendly even to young audiences.

I have decided to also to do a test on the title with a simple animation showing letter shaped logs flowing through the river
