The animation is a sort of moving carousel, changing the scenery before fading away in the background. It mixes media, with collage and textures. (Something I am quite fond of.)
In my digging to discover more about the animator, I found a short interview with him, including how he made this piece.
This particular animation has significance to my progression, because I'd like to experiment with the idea of having a fixed camera and the environment and scenes slide in and out of shot to continue telling the story. A little like paper theatre.
Another animation I was told to look at is 'The Secret of Kells'. This 2008 animated film is set in precisely the medieval era I intend to set my story alongside the Irish Celtic vibe I need. However 'The Secret of Kells' incorporates this lovely combination of cute characterization with medieval illustration and stained glass. Perspectives are at strange angles, but in this particular environment it works perfectly. There is a large element of shape involved in this animation, interesting scenes in which all the features fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Now the intention is to better investigate 'Insular Art' and |Celtic patterns to help me create a new way of animating. I intend to 'grow' the scenery and fluidly change the events of my Morrigan story using Celtic knots and patterns. The shapes will be moved around like elements in a paper theatre with a distinctive medieval Irish vibe to it.
