Final work for Animation Class (2014).


Thoughts is a short music video for and inspired by Erik Satie’s piece — Gymnopédie No.1. It’s about the struggle of a girl when she miss her loved one so much. I want to present a feeling of quiet but deep.

Behind the Animation


In Thoughts, I combined Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere together. The first hand-drawing part was done in photoshop under stop motion mode. The last part was done in after effect including the simple 3D models of the city.
