SYNOPSIS

⁣⁣Gomika is a lonely bot living in a world that is all about having a purpose,
but Gomika being this little outsider does not. It tries to fit in but doesn't know how, so it tries to help but isn't built for that and just gets in the way.


⁣Each music instrument represents a different character, Gomika is the acoustic guitar, the worker bots are the Bassoon, and the Cello is the Boss bot.



⁣This started out as an animated VR Film, but issues with hardware at the school made it nearly impossible. I then switched to stop motion, but when the COVID19 lock down happened in late March I had to ditch that. I didn't have the space needed for the large sets I built. I had to switch to 2D with very little time. Using limited animation in key areas was pivotal in completing the film on time at the semesters end. You can see these various test shots in the closing credits.
