For this project, I choose Rosemary Stones who is author and commentator and based on her article - ‘Pour out the cocoa, Janet’: SEXISM IN CHILDREN’S BOOK. She thought that in a sexist society, choices are basis of a person’s sex rather than on the basis of abilities. Book is a good way to influence people how to treat the gender, especially offer role models to lead child. So, I choose book in this animation, and I show many jobs are done by women. Tell people women can do a lot of work and have freedom. They can have their own goals, even if these jobs are challenging. This animation has two parts. One is black and white that make people feeling cloudy, another one is colorful Showing women have power. At transform part I used wave, since water can make people feeling suffocate, on the other hand it can flush past time. Music is upbeat motivational piano piece (made by Andrew Caden).
( a little bit about the project : your choice, interpretation, the idea behind the film, the technique, the style, sound music. What define this project? What is the most important things for you? What were you trying to achieve? The director statement help the public to understand your artistic goals) The initial idea of this project is to explore the possibility of interactive VR animation and combine it with the theme of exploring ourselves – human beings. In the year of 3000, when the earth might be taken over by another creature, how will they see us human beings? What will happen if they do research on us based on a surrealistic painting of human? Do we really understand our life, our body and our soul? How does it feel like if we see ourselves from another creature’s perspective? By using VR software such as Tilt Brush, Quill, Masterpiece, and Unity, we experimented the possibilities of creating interactive VR animation, and we also tried to break the boundary between interactive VR and animation.
TRY TRY TRY
The content was created based on the song Try Try Try by Jason Mraz. With the light melody and beating, the song conveys the idea about making this world a better place and that everyone should be more optimistic. Most of the scenes in this piece of work were made out of paper using the stop motion technique. Real person, coloured sand and wires were also used to perfect the animation. The display of certain scenes’ effect was done through Adobe AE.

he boy was a nerd who went on a blind date with an athletic girl. The girl was too busy eating that she didn’t communicate with the boy at all. He then tried the same thing with many other girls, but all of them failed because he did not have anything in common with the girls. He went home, feeling down. A puppy drew his attention. It turns out that the new neighbor is a nerd just like him. They soon fell in love with each other.
