I’ve finally finished my animation! I am still looking for a child actor for Sydu’s voice over, but provisionally I got an adult actor to re-pitch her voice to match a child’s. She has also done the voiceover for Bana, the caretaker.
I’ve made some sand textures that I’ve added in to almost all my backgrounds, because I loved the way texture is used in the new Ghibli film The Red Turtle.
Here are my textures, which were made following the tutorial on this website.
I will now be rounding up my closing credits list, making nicer subtitles, and maybe adding better shadows to my backgrounds if I have time. Next step is my essay!
