For my DFA Final, the assignment was to create character sheets and beatboards of a story of our own choosing. We didn't necessarily have to use a pre existing story so I created my own kinda sci-fi-ish tale.
The short version of it:
Starts out in the future when the planet has become so polluted and humans have resorted to living in these bubble like cities. Researchers are the only ones allowed out to gather the mutated wildlife in order to study them and find a way to revert the planet back to how it was. The main protagonist is Uri, a boy whose parents fund these research facilities and are directly connected to them. One day, he discovers one of these mutated beasts can somehow communicate with him. They form a bond and after a series of events he decides to free the beast. Taking his robotic dog along with them, they venture outside the city, but because of an accident he is left stranded on the outside. Thus begins his journey back home, however along the way he uncovers a sinister plot...
*big thanks to my friends for helping me brainstorm plot ideas and names
URI-refers to the first man in space. a cosmonaut from russia Yuri Gagarin
LAIKA-would be the name of the first dog in space
KOTSVO-is an anagram of the spaceship Yuri traveled in, the VOSTOK
So I tried to make a Timelapse Animation of a drawing I made (below). There are probably better programs and I'm a complete novice with Flash so I have no idea what made me want to use it, but I did learn a few things in the process.

I've finally started work on my new mural, which is revolving around asian culture and inspired by those graphic screen dividers. This is still in the work in progress mode, so any helpful feedback would be great!
