Cupid's Serenade (it's up!)Monday, May 06, 2013
Finally my thesis film is now online! Before anything else, I just want to give a huge thank you to everybody who have helped me out in this project, whether in big ways such as arranging music or singing for me, or in small ways like little messages of encouragement. When I chose to do a musical frame-by-frame flash animation for my thesis, I didn't really consider just how much of a challenge this would be especially since I didn't know how to make music (my biggest problem). All I wanted was motivation for me to practice frame-by-frame animation, and nothing motivates more than deadlines. Plus, I thought making characters dance and sing would be fun (which it still is). This project really pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways, and my constant mantra was that nothing worth doing ever comes easy. I still have no idea how I got through it all if not for the people around me and God's grace.
Sorry for the cheese! Haha! But here it is! The fruit of a year of tears, frustration, disappointment, small failures and successes. I hope you enjoy!
