With Year 2 CGAA students turning their imaginations towards their up-and-coming Transcription project, I've had a number of conversations about emphasis - i.e. what emphasis should and could Transcription take re. character design and/or animation. Perhaps this short, sweet, bizarre and really rather wonderful animation by Alla Kinda for Pocoyo's director, Guillermo Garcia Carsi might help clarify things - for here we have some striking character designs, the animation of which serves to further communicate their character (as opposed to 'tell a story' or satisfy a complex narrative structure). This animation showcases series of small, perfectly-formed performances by a set of cute and quirky character designs. Watch and learn (and maybe downsize your expectations of a 10 week project accordingly...).
