First, a video to introduce the porcupine...

Process: Storyboards of certain story moments. Found objects were collected to inspire a thread of moments that made up the complete story. 

This film will focus heavily on the character's actions of collecting lost objects. For a few months, I collected knick knacks, candy wrappers and anything else that caught my eye. I used these items to inspire the character's actions and the story to integrate process into animation. By showing process as well as natural visual textures, I hope that the film becomes easier to connect to. 

Final Animation
Side by side comparison of storyboards to final scene. Below, is a process video of only the objects. 

Each item is photographed and manipulated digitally to get rid of any stiffness, hopefully to give more life to each item!
