I fell in love with a poem by Dayle Ann Dodds back when I was 14. So when my 2D-Animation professor said that our first project assignment was to animate a body of text, I knew in a heartbeat which to choose.
Created with a mix of hand-drawn illustrations scanned in, photographs, and images created in photoshop.
This was also when I learned that an incredibly difficult thing to animate is the human walk. Color of the starfish has been modified from the poem to allow better visuals.
