What Is Animation? 

'Animation is constantly evolving'
Through the journey of a young boy called Joe, you are transported back to where animation all began, meeting a few familiar faces along the way. 'The Birth of Animation' explores the history of how animation began, and how it changed through technology advancements and creative developments by current established animation studio such as Disney. This film is meant to inspire and excite people about 2D animation and pay respects to how it has evolved to what it is today through the medium of hand drawn animation.


This Project was made by myself and the very talented Tara Peak. 

We had around 4-5 weeks to complete the project and it was quite ambitious, but through working as a team we managed to create something we are both very proud of and hope entertaining and educational. 

In the film we took refrence from "Disneys steamboat willie, Alice in wonderland" and the animated show "The Jetsons."  


I was responsble for all the animation of the main character Joe.


And everything seen below.
