We’re so excited to share this piece by Sophie Spalding, one of our year 2 DMID students.  There are definite echoes in this story of the fact that a lot of us have been alone more than usual this year and looking for a little contact – human or otherwise.   The pre-production images below show Sophie’s character designs and an excerpt from her storyboards – finishing these to a high standard meant the story was clearly mapped out ahead of beginning the animation process.  We hope she makes a second episode so we can see what the characters get up to next….

This work was created for the 2D animation module run by Fiona Stewart and Andrew McKelvey.  Thanks to Sophie for allowing us to feature her work.
