Swelter from Jacob Streilein on Vimeo.

This animation gave me inspiration through the movement of water as it pours out of the tap and the use of fire with in the sweltering heat of the sun and on the villains face. Looking at my initial ideas so far, I could visualize my animation absorbing water or fire theme. This animation helped me to look at how both elements can be portrayed in a simplistic and effective manner.
The animation is simple through the use of the character structure and the background which holds block shapes that then absorb detail through the use of signs and age. 
The use of the red, yellow and brown colour scheme works well with the theme of the burning sun as it looms over the town.
The audio contains a piano lead track that distorts out as the villain appears, and a beat that continues to gain speed enters as the villain chases after the young child in the animation. The audio works well as it builds tension for the audience.
