Week Two Group Work: King Kong
In week two of our Animation Planning module, we were assigned the task of producing a short animated piece, which was to be based on one of our favourite films. After much consideration, we decided to summarise the movie “King Kong” by selecting the major plot points and condensing it into an animation that lasts no more than sixty seconds. We found this to be fairly risky, given that the movie has a total runtime of 187 minutes.
With roughly only six hours to completely plan, storyboard and then produce this animation, we found it rather demanding on ourselves to complete it within the allocated time. However, with noticeably obvious cut backs and some jerky animation, we finally managed to complete the exercise.
