Lin Lan BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation 2020

In the third year of my degree, I created a short animation. The story is of a girl who was born in a peaceful village. But her parents decided to search for a new place and on their journey, enter a forest. They became lost in the woods and the girl begins an adventure on her own.

This story relates to and interprets from my own experience of when I first came to the UK. During my final year, I found that I am really interested in Chinese mythology and Chinese ink drawing animations. I have found references inspired by my research to draw this animation which led to the development of my animation style for this project.

I have worked with a range of techniques to develop this project, including Adobe After Effects, working particularly with the camera function.
