Deciding on Informative

After we had come up with some of our initial ideas we went back and reviewed what we actually wanted our animation to do, and we decided that we wanted it to inform the audience about a topic.

We looked at different ways to inform an audience and then what sort of topic that we wanted to tackle.

We narrowed it down to anxiety, making a big deal out of anything and Alzheimer’s.



After ideation and doing some concept sketches we then refined what direction we wanted to take in regards to the content of our animation.

We wanted to create something that was:

  • Helpful
  • Visually stunning
  • Abstract

We then decided to focus in on Alzheimers and Anxiety as topics to create an animation around.

Concept Art

After Ideation, we tried to come up with a number of concept ideas that we could further develop.


The main ideas were an animation to give a visual representation of Alzheimers, an animation to give a visual representation of anxiety, a little dog getting revenge and an animation which highlights the fact that there is always someone with a bigger problem than you.

  • Alzheimers
  • Werewolf
  • Problems



I decided to try and create a robot to play with and this is Max.

You can actually move his limbs but his right leg dislocates itself from the knee down for some reason, aside from that it seems to work.
