Project 1 The roof

Portfolio of Shuyu Qu

01


The cause of this animated short is very simple, last winter vacation I went to climb the mountain with my parents, suffering from fog and haze, finally we had a chance to stay away from the city's chaotic air. But we did not expect that, when we reached the top of the hill, of course the sky was blue in front of us, but when we began to go down the hillside, the air was dirty, in fact fog and haze was trampled underfoot, on the other hand, looking down at the city polluted by haze under the mountain, I was born with feelings with the idea to create the animation. The leading role of the animation is a boy, the story background is the hustle and bustle of the city, the boy accidentally picks up a green leaf, but he does not think that the small leaf can continue to grow in the air-dirty place, so he wants to find a high roof away from the city to take care of the small leaf. However, when he finally reaches the roof, he is not the only one who has the idea, and the roof is already a green world.

The image of the little boy is one that I like, I always set the animation role as a boy, because the alive appearance makes me think a lot, for example about youth, about memories. Sometimes I always think I am a little boy, a little boy with a lot of troubles. I think the boy's troubles are not the same as adults, although very small, but they are very reasonable.

I spend a lot of time on the design of the scene, the boy finds a lot of roofs to find the best one. In order to highlight the city's sense of loneliness, it can be compared with the world of the roof, highlighting the original beauty of the world. 1st project

Project 2 Oh, My God!

Portfolio of Shuyu Qu

06


In fact this is one of my dreams, I always dream that unlucky days accompany me and I complain every day, but one day a big pot is going to hit me, it goes around me and falls on the ground beside me, it seems that a pair of invisible hands protect me. I forget a lot of dreams when I wake up, but this one is especially clear, I search the meaning of the dream on the Internet when I wake up, I accidentally read this cartoon which coincides with my dream well, there are really a lot of things hard to say in the world, but lucky coincidence exists here, so I show the story in the form of animation.

The main figure is an office worker, this young man is unlucky every day, although he is fully dressed but he hates his own life, the pressure of life makes him want to escape from this world. 2nd project

Another figure is God, the role is to save the leading role, so I design the role of God very kind and lovely, colorful halo around, which is a symbol of happiness and hope. Roles design / Portfolio of Shuyu Qu

For the first half of the story, I tell it by means of two main lines cross each other, a story line is the daily life of the leading role, another story line is his bad experience in the past, so to highlight his tragic life. For the second half of the story, he finds out what God has done for him, and begins a new optimistic life. In fact, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that seeing God is in his dream or true. 2nd project

The first half of the tone is more gray, and corresponds with the psychological situation of the leading role. 2nd project

For the second half I use a more clear color, which similarly reflects the psychological quality changes of the leading role. 2nd project

Project 3 Plum blossoms in the snow

Portfolio of Shuyu Qu

13


It is an interesting attempt. Our short - term animation job is to make an animated short that is related to reading, and my partner says, “ Why don't we attempt to make a stop-motion animation?” “ Yeah! I think it's a good idea.” I said. Most Chinese in their childhood have learned a children’s song called Plum blossoms in the snow, the lyrics are very brief, it is like this: It’s stopped snowing and is clearing up Winter sweets bloom everywhere Pass the bridge on the donkey Jingle all the way So we combine reading and the artistic conception of the song to start making the stop-motion animation.

We design some traditional images of Chinese children, but also draw on the composition of some traditional Chinese paintings to better interpret the nursery rhyme animation with classical Chinese style.

3rd project

Preliminary conception / Portfolio of Shuyu Qu

15


For the material, we use various colors of soft clay, we use the wire as the skeleton of the figure and cover clay to complete the image of the figure and the donkey, we also use wooden chopsticks to build the bridge, use glass paper and transparent glue to simulate water under the bridge, and also buy somefresh plum branches as the setting. Of course, there are a large piece of linen as our background, with more sense of times and full of Chinese style. The process of making a stop-motion animation is very interesting, and I won't forget the time.

Inspiration from the tranditional Chinese book.
