Favorite Animation

Secondary Action- The drop as it goes down to the middle of the page drops into the water and the secondary action is the ripples that go off out of the page. Another secondary action that occurs is the balloon and the pop that goes off after it grows a little.

Timing- The timing aspect is shown through both above examples as well as the white ball that bounces a few times and the blue ball that came and knocked it off screen.

Appeal: The main character speaks on fitness and health but she has a definite appeal and charisma that draws the viewer to like her and to care more about what she’s saying including the way it was created gives the character a more likeable feel.

Secondary Action: Even from the very beginning the primary character is speaking and moving around and there’s a few things going on in the background such as deadlifting, chopping up food etc. and it continues throughout the entirety of the video.

12 principles of Animation Week #7

Anticipation: This animation is purely an anticipation and thriller type of video and throughout the story the narrator and the animation give it a more gloomy and suspenseful feel with the monotone reading and the scene taking place very late at night.

Exaggeration: The exaggeration aspect has been seen through the features of the smiling man, the huge smile that no real person is capable of actually having, and the body proportions has been exaggerated as well to both make the antagonist more creepy and add to the “what’s gonna happen next” sort of anticipation of the entire story.
