This was a study that involved documenting everything I touched for 24 hours.
It revealed to me how tedious “simple” tasks are such as making buttered toast:
Open pantry doors > pick up air tight container > remove lid > remove bread from container > unclip the little bag seal device > remove bread slices > clip seal back on bread bag > place bread back in container > close lid on container > put container in food pantry > close pantry doors > open appliances cupboard doors > remove toaster > plug in toaster > flick the on switch > close appliances cupboard door > pick up bread slice > put in toaster > pull handle down > set timing nob > open fridge door > remove butter > close fridge door > open cutlery draw > remove butter knife > close cutlery draw > remove toast from toaster….
I got tired just writing that and we haven’t even finished buttering the toast and putting everything away!
I didn’t make toast in these 24hrs, it’s just too hard!
For my final year in Visual Communication and Design at High School, I chose to do an animation concept board that included an environment, a vehicle, and some characters. I had a whole story in my brief to go with it which was funky monkey, anyway here are a couple of the final imagery as well as some Dev work on the characters.
This is the environment that the majority of the movie would take place in. Hot climate, very hot climate.
This was the ATV that the main character uses to blast around, the main character is a rev head naturally..
Dev work of the characters, this would become the protagonist of the story
Dev work of the characters, this would become the damsel in distress.
Dev work of the characters and this is the antagonist.
