Sugar Rush Sundays

I got 1 week and 2 days left till the dead line, Im trying to work as fast as possible. the idea of this animation is to show sweetness, energetic and colorful atmosphere in the animation because it relates well with the sound file. although it is a 5 second clip, I can animate alot in it. I think my idea is very ambitious, having loads of characters will be alot to animate but in the end it worked out fine. I needed lots of characters because of the sound clip, lots of sweet like characters cheering in the background. I have based my animation by looking at Katy Perry's Music video "California Girls" down below. I liked the softness and bright light colors which makes it look sweet. cute characters to attract and appeal to younger audiences.

Final Sugar Rush Animation : Improved Jumping stiffness of the bear and added "Sundays" in the end.

1st Animation: this animating went easy as I thought it be, it was very easy putting it all together when I got all assets ready and perfect to go. I showed this to some people and asked for feed back. There was much there is to change just improving to bear jump cycle a bit more because it looked very stiff, maybe correct the timing and add secondary action like the recoil of the jump. Other than that, I need to add "Sundays" in the end, I completely forgot to type it in. I was thinking of rotating the spiral lollipop but I think it would overtake your eyes from seeing the bears and the title. But that is something to test about.

This is My Improved bear jump cycle, I had a few more days to spare, why not improve it. I have improved the timing and make it look like it has gravity and gave it a recoil when landed on the floor to make it realistic.

Fireworks Test by using CC Particle Simulation 2. I never knew that I could make a firework in after effects before. I always thought, that would be in a different software or draw it manually but I'd be crazy if I did.

This is the Tutorial I have followed to make my firework effects.

This is a Preview Plan of my Animation ending for sugar rush. I have done this all in illustrator, I made some different designs of the gummy bears but wasnt happy about the results so I have improved it and this is my result. The layout of this design isnt final yet, It'll be later improved when I work on it in After effects. This design was Inspired from Katy Perry's Music Video "California girls" and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. I liked the idea of having a castle made out of sweets and ice cream. I have designed my own castle and Im quite happy about it. 

Final Gummy Bear Design
Cupcake, Cookies, Biscuits and Donuts Design.
I designed the characters cute to target younger audiences so they will be interested in the animation. I have kept the design colors really light and soft to the eye.
More assets for the background animation

This is where I have based my design from
