As a 2D animator, I use the concept of simplicity to create intense, emotional narratives through the use of minimal linework and manipulation of organic shapes. As I storyboard for a piece, I will research the meanings behind aspects to be included in a scene. I'm fascinated by scene interpretation through symbolism, as small details can hold several different meanings. A lone light source that illuminates a character's face in a dramatic angle can determine how a scene will be read by the slightest shift in color. When the audience is immersed in the story, and the animation makes them question the small details, then I believe I have made a truly successful piece.
