The intricate design of the world around us and the the way everything works together in balance truly fascinates and inspires me. This animation seeks to highlight some examples of symbiosis (interaction between species) in a minimalistic style. I consider this animation an expression of my faith, because learning about nature is one of the ways I clearly see God’s hand at work in the world around us. Such a beautiful and intricate design is a true testament to His creativity and power.
I made this as part of my graduation at the Master of Animation and seized the opportunity to step away from the more abstract projects I had been doing recently. I challenged myself to try a style that required much more planning and preparation than I was used to for my personal projects so far. It was a fun challenge to see how I could design the animals in a minimal yet recognizable and consistent way.
I chose to use a limited color palette for each scene and followed simple design rules for a consistent look throughout the project.
