:star:Puupuu's Amazing Boots:star:

This is a short film I made as part of my studies for my Master of Sciences degree - "Puupuu's Amazing Boots".

-The story-

Puupuu is playing outside but when rain falls she runs for cover. What she finds inside a house leads to fun.


-Background-

The film is intended to focus on one character and how it reacts to the world. Puupuu is curious and does not understand much about the world, so she uses her imagination and discovery to determine what things are. The idea for the film came from these pieces of work:

:star: The Great PUUPUU live on stage - [link]

:star: PUUPUU rainoutfit poses - [link]

:star: Puupuu running in rain -test- - [link]

I was also inspired by simple stories with morals (such as Aesop's fables and Eastern European animations). The style of backgrounds was inspired by Eastern European animation and more specifically by American animations from the 1960s by Chuck Jones and DePatie-Freleng, where abstract colours were used and things weren't always coloured within the lines. This contrast between backgrounds and character enables the character to stand out more.

I tried to keep things simple with this film, though a lot of detail went into Puupuu's movements. The flower fields for example were kept simple by drawing a few flowers to show that a mass was a flower field rather than drawing every flower there was. This allows the viewer to imagine that the field is of flowers by a few flowers alone.


:star: I hope you enjoy it, and tell your friends about it! :dance:
