04: Teaching Support | Keep it Tidy, Man

Example Animation

This project requires you to make an animation from the image shown above. The target Audience is 16-25 years old and the animation should preferably be black and white although minimal colour can be introduced.

Your animation and design should strive to give the tidy man a personality, and as a guideline, might be a fun, humorous, ironic, subversive, embrace perversity of stupidity.

The only stipulations are that you should incorporate the tidy man character and that the animation should discourage littering.
