THE CAN (2017)
“The Can” is an animated comedy sketch, released in 2017. It was created as a final piece for an Art Multimedia topic, entitled “Objects and Viewpoints”. The way it fits into the theme is by giving an inanimate object a consciousness, and showing the viewpoint it’d have on humans.
I recorded the dialogue myself, given that the human character is meant to be an animated stand-in of me. The music was all strung together from soundtracks I enjoy, such as Hamilton. I used royalty free sound effects from YouTube and other sources, such as a can shaking, a “swoosh” sound, etc.
I also used a green surface within the animation for the TV, which I then replaced with a previously created animation of Iron Man and Captain America “fighting”, in a parody of the “Captain America: Civil War” movie.
