As a designer I love to use simple illustration and skething as a way to visualise my designs. This piece however utulised this simplicity and created a unique style for a short animated film.
The story portrays a young girl and her ambition. Whilst Ambition remains by her side, she never has to explore the rest of the world, knowing that he is all she would ever need. So, wanting her to have a better experience of life, he leaves her to wander in the world alone for a while to grow and change.
By the time they meet again both Girl and Ambition are different and no longer rely on each other to live in the big wideness of the world.
The piece allowed me to use my love of both creative writing and illustration, to create a sketchy, atmospheric, animation.
Original music written and produced by Simon Allum.
