Ice Cream

Ice Cream is an animation that I did as a part of my final semester at Monash in Digital Art. The animation took eight weeks solo and resulted in this three minute animation that questions society’s sense of connection and togetherness, and the paranoia surrounding strangers and their motives.

The Environment

Ice Cream is set in a dystopia where commodity rules and a sense of community is lost. The hard and cold edges of the city is contrasted against the light and fluffy world of our superhero.

DVD

The DVD cover was made to resemble an icecream sandwich, with the waffle cover made of stamped foam and the cream drops made of silicon, stuck on a white DVD case. The DVD images were printed using a laser DVD imager.

The Hero

The Ice Cream Superhero was based on your classic comic book good guy: buff, wearing skintight lycra, and of course the trademark underwear outside the pants. I poked some fun at the style by adding pink into the mix to keep things less serious.

The Villain

Mr Paranoia is an embodiment of fear, doubt, and of course paranoia. It symbolises societal woes as a whole and the shrouded nature of the figure represents our unwillingness to unmask these fears and face them.

The People

The people characters are designed to be glossy and mechanical, as if they are trapped in a ill fitting mask. They were designed to look as generic as possible while also slightly off putting, as if there was something eerily wrong with them.
