Relevant Animation History

Childhood lead poisoning is a serious problem in Bangladesh, affecting millions of children. The documentary One in 36 Million sheds light on the devastating impact lead exposure has on the lives of the country’s youth. This documentary was one of the inspirations for me to decide to focus my sustainable topic on global pollution.
The documentary highlights the urgent need for interventions to prevent and mitigate the effects of lead poisoning on children’s health. It demonstrates the challenges faced by families and communities dealing with the effects of lead exposure when batteries are illegally recycled.

My second film demonstrates climate change and pollution by showing some pretty heavy and interesting footage, some of it taken from the space station. Music effects and voice overs make the film show the reality much more effectively and create that shattering effect on the viewer. This is exactly the message I also want to convey in my own animation, wanting it to have a shocking impact on anyone who watches it and make them think about the topic. I’ll try to recreate the picture the way it’s portrayed in the movie, worrisome, dark and thought-provoking, including as much as I can of the causes of global pollution and how to deal with it.

The style of the last two animations aligns closely with my desired animation style – simple drawings and plain backgrounds. The message conveyed in these animations resonates with the themes I aim to portray in my own work. However, the lack of conceptual transitions in these animations is a drawback for me. Including such transitions in my animations will enhance viewer engagement and create a lasting impact.

Conceptual transitions play a crucial role in capturing the audience’s attention and adding depth to the visual storytelling. By incorporating these transitions into my animations, I can elevate the viewing experience and ensure that viewers are fully immersed in the narrative. These transitions will serve as a bridge between scenes, enhancing the overall cohesiveness and impact of the animation.
