Hot Potato

For this project, I decided to make an animation where the narrative was driven by drawing and a central theme, rather than by a storyboard. After looking into darts competitions for my first project ‘Farm Panic Breakup Interview’ I realised I was really interested in the concept of competitive sport, especially the kind that did not require much endurance. From this, I started to think about competitions on a much smaller scale such as an egg and spoon race or a bean bag race. The idea of “Hot Potato” came from my research on these kinds of childhood games.
