This animation is a story of my journey through music. The small character throughout the entirety of the animation represents myself, along with the paper airplane that represents the small joys and triumphs that were often hard to find in life.
The music starts broken initially to show my hatred for music, how it had once created a space of imagination and positivity however, gradually integrated negativity into my life.
As the animation develops, it shows the new light that was brought into my musical journey, represented by the character picking up the airplane. The character experiences bumps and difficulties but reaches the end, where the musical notes represent the start of me “writing my own story” – the moral of my animation. (This has a video of me playing my harp in the background to show my new, positive attitude towards music). I chose the “UP Theme” here, to represent my dream to imagine again and to represent my movement forward in life.
Hope you enjoy~!
