Back to childhood
"I originally came up with the idea when I had wanted to create a sculpture and showcase it within the college lobby or corridor. I would collect as much detail from people as possible by having a box with a few questions asking about the most memorable experiences people had from their childhoods and after this I would present a cardboard box 'Time Machine'.
Once inside the person would hear, smell, and see visuals that would more than likely trigger some old memory from their childhood, thus throwing them back in time. I eventually turned this idea into an extremely short story which I posted onto my art page on Instagram. It was about a stubborn teacher not believing in the so-called children's Time Machine.
Once the time came for my Final Year Project for my course in Animation and Motion Design, I was drawn back to this idea and story the most. Tweaking it and drawing up some very rough storyboards initially, I was slowly able to develop the story more. I started with characters, the type of shot I was looking for and the colour palette. I wanted to use colours which would replicate a primary school's environment – colourful yet a little gloom."
