Goldilocks and The Economy is a short animated film. The film tells the story of the struggle one man faces, as he tries to find the ‘Just Right’ scenario. The ‘Just Right’ scenario in this story, is the balance between recession and inflation. In terms of production, Goldilocks and The Economy as film has been used as tool to allow me to explore various methods of animation techniques.
The film uses a combination of stop-motion, live action, 2d and 3d sets, which have then been composited in Adobe After Effects. Filmed entirely on an iPhone, I feel this combination has created a distinctive low-fi style.
The set has been created with materials where their original purpose was never intended for set design, for example, newspapers, coffee stirrers, cardboard boxes, paperclips and plumbing joints.
