In the animation world, talent and creativity is everywhere. From large studios like Pixar and Disney, to the students who receive their diplomas from animation schools every year, the art of animation is undertaken by many. So we want to feature animators who are doing what they love and are passionate about. This week are highlighting the work of Kevin Hobson, a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design who has been creating 2D animated works over the last few years. Here's a bit of how he made "Mother's Craft" and his vision for this short film.
"Mother's Craft was my senior film I developed before I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. My inspiration came from fictional witches like the ones in Looney Tunes and The Wizard of Oz. During my junior year at SCAD, I was randomly drawing ideas in my sketchbook for my senior film when I came up with a little witch girl and a plunger. That is when the story was born. Each week, I would go through my script, storyboard and character designs to decide on what would work best for the film. I chose 2D animation as my medium because I love traditional style animation that Disney and Warner Bros. used to make their films. My overall objective was to create a film that audiences would enjoy and also be surprised by."
