I was tasked with using the theme of lightness to tell a narrative story. I decided to use the most unlikely object to convey lightness—a heavy robot named Walter. My narrative laid out the story that Walter the robot is overwhelmed by the industrial world. As he stares at a cog on the ground, he drifts off into a daydream where he becomes light as a feather and can take flight into the troposphere. I started this project by designing the character in illustrator, ensuring all the pieces I wanted to animate were on separate layers, and then completed the animation in After Effects.
