Olilo – (China/USA) Animated RT 5:44
Director: Ao Li
My graduate thesis Olilo is a short 2D animation that’s approximately 5 minutes. I created it through a combination of frame-by-frame digital drawing and key frame animation processed through Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere.
The theme focuses on love and sharing– how introverted people fit into the world in their personal ways. In my story, an introverted girl is held captive by her own semi-transparent personal space, a cube. This gives her an unusual dimension on multiple levels. Her life is like going through a series of tiny doors. It is hard for her.
She has developed her own special way to survive in the world. When people knock into her cube, she feels anxious. One day, she bumps into a boy who is also warped by his own personal tremendous space. The boy accidentally dropped his key. She start thinking about the new shape and trying to return the key to the boy. However she cannot approach him. Distance is always a part of her experience. From that moment on, she tries many ways to change herself. She struggles through the process. Gradually, she cracks her space, breaks her cube and grows up.
