I was fortunate to be able to complete some animation for a locally shot short film.
"The Sacred Seven is an inspiring story driven from one foster child's morals that far surpasses that of which has been afforded by her neglectful Foster Mother. Melissa grounds herself with the Seven Sacred Teachings taught by the late Elder Doris Campbell. Melissa realizes that her only safe haven from her home is by living her life in spiritual harmony."
After much planning and discussion, hand drawn animation seemed like the perfect fit for the film. Adobe After Effects was the best choice of a program to combine the live action footage with animation.
I was required to animate the seven characters individually as they came to "life" and proceeded to hop across the screen from their stationary state. A long time in the making, but it was all worth it to see the final product up on the big screen at the official premier earlier tonight.
