ESSAY: PRIMAL - SOUND OF A STORY
Ugh Uh Ah Rawr!
What do you get when you cross a caveman and a dinosaur? 10 episodes of brutal violence.
When I started Any-mation, originally I had 6 video ideas that were born from different root aspects of animation. Character Design, Background Design, Movement, what it means to tell a story and so on. One area I did want to come back and look at it Sound Design, but I was waiting on the right show. Then Primal came along. Not only was it tremendously captivating and exciting, it added the extra challenge of not having any dialogue.
Using the visuals paired with emoting through sound effects, it was the perfect opportunity to visit a video about sound design and revisit a modern master like Genndy Tartakovsky. What a join it was to make this video essay.
"ANIMATION ISN'T THE ILLUSION OF LIFE,
IT IS LIFE."
