I entered and was a finalist in the Sydney Opera House’s GRAPHIC animation competition! I’ve whacked the stuff I had to make for the contest on YouTube.
First, there were two video diaries:
My head looks larger and pinker in the second one, but the clip is shorter and has a better ending.
And here’s my complete entry. The contest had 3 rounds, and we had to make 20 seconds of action for each round. I tried to make it a cohesive Precinct-type story even though we had to include specific themes and objects in our entry (“seven years” and “recovery” were two of them):
It was a lot of work, but a very nice experience overall. I went up to Sydney for the GRAPHIC festival, which was pretty kickarse, and met most of the other animators!
