Ghost in the Toast

This is an idea I sort of came up with at the end of the semester for this silly project for Hobaica's class (that I didn't need to take but was pretty fun). We had to do a "time based" project which could be a whole range of things. I was crazy and insisted on doing this thirty second animation with full color and a soundtrack. Luckily my fellow group members Teryn and Hilary were willing to go along with my insane ploy and we got the whole thing done in five days. I played the guitars and Teryn made the awesome singing noises with her magical voice of magic. We also had some super awesome help from Marina and Michelle who both animated awesome awesomeness. They did the last shot with the bubbles which Hilary colored with her crazy genius color powers. (also she did the background) Nicole helped color some of Teryn's prismacolor marker animation.
It's like Ghost in the Shell but like without the robots and existentialism.


And here's some sort of concepty stuff I did and put into my portfolio.


I did this the night before the portfolios were do kind of for fun even though it's ridiculous to do this much work so close to the deadline. The colors are really weird...something I didn't really catch through the haze of my tiredness. It was a fun learning experience though cause I haven't really done rendered looking stuff like this in PS. The characters are kind of weird looking.... OH WELL.

i loved this! and makes me think that there should be more mini collaborations, just because of what can come out from it.

I thought your Calarts portfolio was AMAZING! I'm a sophomore in high school and I was wondering if you have any advice on getting in. Books to read, life drawing advice, etc. Thanks in advance!
