The Unexpected is a short animation made by me during my first year in university. Our brief was to create a 20 second long animation with the title ‘The Unexpected’. My animation is based around my character, an art student and activist, who uses her art as part of her activism. The quote “Art is the weapon” was taken from a slideshow picture I saw when I went to see My Chemical Romance on their Danger Days tour. I used the rotoscoping method in Photoshop, adding layers over the top of a small video I made myself.
