For the Love of Toast

“For the  Love of Toast” 

I feel like the Badger from the book “Bread and Jam for Frances.”  I love toast an obscene amount, and I often make up songs to sing while eating it. Coincidence?  I think not.

This final animation will be my Ode to toast.

The Plot Proposal: “For the  Love of Toast”

Intro: Person is in their kitchen, putting bread into the toaster.  The suspense builds as they wait for the toast to be done.  IT is taking a long time.  This scene is created using hand drawn 2D animation or rotoscoping.

Development: In a delirious desperation, the person starts to see toast and toasters everywhere.  The fridge is a toaster, the door is a toaster—even the house is a toaster!  (insert hallucinogenic Phenakistiscope sequence).

Turn: The persons is sucked inside of the toaster, being toasted (perhaps this could be a claymation sequence?).

Conclusion: The persons pops out of the toaster. The toast eats the person. The person is crispy.

The end.

My objectives for this project:

  1. Become better acquainted with Aftereffects
  2. Create a scene that uses:
    1. a Phenakistoscope animation OR
    2. some sort of claymation
  3. Practice with morphing scenes together
  4. implement creative transitions from one scene to the next

I am excited for toast.
