I normally make story boards with no intention of actually following them, however, because I had a musician working with me he needed to have some timings for the animation. So I took story boarding seriously for once, and it actually really benefited me as it gave me a basis for the story telling. Without it I’m convinced I would have forgotten an important part of the story line.
Below is a video that I made of the story line with its timings, this has been a helpful guide for myself and Jesse to work by:
I recently reached out to my boyfriend (Jesse) who makes music, to see if he could collaborate with me on my animation. I had been thinking over what to use as music for a while and I was concerned as to what music to use because music was such a pivotal characteristic of the Sixties. I wanted to do it justice and I thought having an original piece of music would be perfect.
Below is a conversation discussing what I want for the piece of music and his replies:
Finally, ‘Transformer’ by Charlie Jenkins is a short promo for the Yellow Submarine, this animation is very simple only being two minutes long however it solidifies elements of the psychedelic scene in the absurdity and colours. Its a slow burner starting small and getting bigger and better.
Above is the final collaboration video for Rap ‘n’ Rhymers, created by me and Lili Toth. I really enjoyed making this video it felt great making it for somebody especially knowing that person was a child. I also watched their performance of the poems, it was really fun
