My main inspiration for this project was the rotoscoped film “Waking Life”, and how it used animation to help create a dream type world, which allows the films content to be understood in a different light. Also my inspiration came from Songshow’s Long beach Led Zeppelin, where he was able to use the song for a different meaning. Here, I attempted to portray the essence of the Beatles by creating a world which represents their work and mindset in their time period.
This animation is roughly 29 seconds and runs at 13 frames per second, and each individual frame was drawn separately. Overall this was a very, very slow process but the result is very unique.
For those who need a recap, the form of animation used was rotoscoping (although there are different types of rotoscoping). This is where every frame of the film is drawn over and then the film is removed.
