What is up sassytaco it is your very own rainbow graysbygrace and I hope you are doing well. Today, I decided to create a blog post about my current short animation which is called 加油 (jiā yóu)！加油 is an expression for motivation or putting in some effort. Moreover, it is a film about a student’s life during quarantine and how she is managing to do her work. I came up with this while on quarantine and doing online classes as it impacted me negatively since I could not balance a lot of my courses. May I say, when I started this idea I first thought of doing a day in my life animated video but it changed as I started writing the script. Furthermore, I wanted to create a character sheet showing how my character would look like but I kept pushing back that task because I slowly lost motivation. One thing I have so far learned from another animator who is an individual animator is to make things as simple as possible so that creating animations can be more interesting as well as worth doing hence animation is the time consumed and needs patience. I don’t want to give away what this video is about but I do hope you enjoy watching the first part of the process video and I will see in the next blogpost.
