This is my final animation project for my Animation 1 class here at CCAD. It follows the events of a young fire spirit girl who is out in the woods to collect firewood. Along the way, she has an experience that creates a conflict between her personality and her nature. I don't want to write much more than that because I would like the animation itself to do most of the talking.

These are some references for one of my original characters. Her name is Madison and she is a ghost. She lives in an abandoned library which is great since she loves books with a burning passion. The easiest way to make her happy and get on her good side is to show her a book she has never read before. Just don't ever try to steal one of her books because she has a temperamental side and might incinerate you with her ghost candles. She has the ability to float and levitate objects.

At this point, the colors are not finalized and the current ones were used just to get a sense of the scene and character designs.

This is a first draft of a storyboard for my 20 second final animation. The story follows a fire spirit girl in the forest gathering firewood. When a branch snaps, she is startled and begins running out of the woods. While running, she hears a pained animal noise and goes to investigate. She finds a wounded deer with an arrow in its side and tries to help it. In pulling the arrow out of the deer, she accidentally sets it on fire which ends up killing the creature. She then starts to weep over the body. The scene zooms out showing the whole forest catching fire. She just keeps weeping because all she can ever do is destroy, no matter how much she wants to help.

NOTE: No cows were harmed in the making of this animation. Although it did encourage a hamburger run for dinner.
The song used is a piano adaptation of a song called "Vector to the Heavens" from the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days OST.

EDIT: something weird was happening with my computer when I tried uploading it originally and it wouldn't upload correctly. I have the problem fixed now.
