dc.description.abstract The Right Fit is an animated short film that follows a young boy from the beginning of life to the discovery of his true love. The protagonists of the film are challenged and aided by nature itself. Watch as the boy travels through dangerous, dark woods as he discovers the meaning of love with the girl that he was meant to be with. The animation was created using the programs Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, and Corel Painter 12. Creating the animation was a process of drawing and painting in Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter 12. The characters and backgrounds were setup and animated in Adobe After Effects. The visual style can be attributed to artists like Yoshiro Kimura and his candy-colored works like Chulip and Little King’s Story. Conceptually, The Right Fit borrows ideas found in the Bible, specifically in Genesis. The story has its roots in Japanese culture and artists like David Lynch and David Firth. These arrays of influences are the ingredients for a strange and whimsical tale about a boy finding true love. en_US
