My First Animation

1. "Don't Stop" - a 2D Short Film

So I made my second animated short film. But this is my first animation because..

I did most of the Animation myself and the entire project had no professional help.💪

Just me, my buddies and an iPad. 

So here’s the film. (It’s super short 😬)

This film was made in procreate and edited on premiere pro. (I’ll share the detailed process next week)

2. Reflections on making this Film(for me)

– Animation takes time regardless of the size of the project. So best to do BIGprojects than small ones.

👨‍⚕️ Get professional help for 2d animation – it’s best for me to focus on other skills like Visual development, design and direction than animation.

– You can make films on procreate but it’s easier on Industry standard softwares.

Think 1 film at a time. 

🐢 ‘Don’t Stop’ – keep goin’ when things get tough.

– It’s hard to stick with projects that takes weeks/months. So have small milestones, reach em’ and celebrate (this is key)

🫂 Here’s how you can go easy on yourself. Treat yourself like a friend that you are helping. Separate yourself from you to see yourself. 

3. Favourite Quote of the week

“It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you don’t stop”

– Confucius

That’s it for this week folks!
See you in the next one 🙂

Best,
Kesh.
