Combining Animation Techniques
"For this project, we were required to use five animation techniques: sand, charcoal, paint on glass, stop motion and drawn on film. This animation was inspired by the history of alchemy (the transformation of substances, like fire changing into water) and elements: sun, moon, earth, fire and water. We wanted to embody alchemical characteristics through animation techniques we had at hand. The beginning and ending are based on both the cycle of life and The Alchemist, a novel about a boy who visits the Great Pyramids."
