**Note - not sure what's going on with the titles in the beginning and the end, but all it says is "Savannah College of Art and Design presents a film by blah blah"
My senior animation done for Savannah College of Art and Design, titled "The Gift"
It is a little story about a rather clueless emperor that's never seen a cat before. He associates the kitten he got as a gift with the deadly panthers of the jungles surrounding his palace, and when the little furball takes a keen interest in his earrings, assumes the creature is after his life.
From planning the initial concept to completion the project took roughly a year to complete. The animation itself is roughly a minute and thirty or forty seconds. The backgrounds have been done in Photoshop and the animation itself has been executed in Flash. Note - this is not a puppet animation, nor did I use any tweens.
I hope you enjoy it. :)
