Poem Adaption Ideas

For this Poem Adaption, I like the image of constellations moving around on a black background telling an abstract visual story based off the poem.

Id like to make the animation using a similar style to 'True North by George Bowler' that I saw at the Bristol Animation Festival. I wouldn't rotoscope my short, Id use either traditional drawn animation, cut-out animation, or 2D animation to create my short. Out of those three option, I'd initially prefer to do the cut-out animation as I would much rather work in stop-motion, however I need to factor in the price of the materials and access to the laser printer as students are unable to use it, so must have a member of staff to print it off. I will talk to Danny from class on Monday about this as he used cut-out animation for his 1st year animation.

Jake Blakeston completed his Ba in Animation in 2016, and completed his MA in 2017. For his second year film he made a music video for the song 'Shia LaBeouf' by Rob Cantor, using cut-out animation.

My Pintrest Board for some imagery that I've found which is similar is style to what I have in mind for this project. https://pin.it/5lcoxcgw7dntrm

I've found a 30 second animation by a student called Margaret Vanderlaan that was uploaded to Vimeo around 6 months ago. Personally, I dislike drawing in 2D as I feel I'm a stronger model maker than drawer, so its nice to see how someone else has perceived the poem in a different way and art style to myself.
