To create music for this animation I was using garage band.
First I uploaded a track of forest sounds. Then I played the music keyboard to create a melody.

Settings for the piano:

At the end I’ve added some thunder and rain sounds to connect to the animation and atmosphere of it. I’ve also changed some settings of fading in and out:

The music mood:

At first the melody is kinda cheerful and happy. Then the music becomes a bit slower and gets into the gloomy mood. For example, the sounds in 0:33 show that the girl was feeling  cheerful but got the realisation of being left out, which represent her feelings of getting lost and scared. Then the thunder and raining sounds come up, which show how she feels. After the sad part at 1:07 there are uplifting sounds again which represent hope. At this time she expects for something to happen. However, the hope wasn’t real and the music ends up with sad, “down-going” sounds, which represent disappearance and the vanishing.

Stop-motion animation:

The soundtrack was made with garage band using a piano and bell instruments. The link to the audio:

Evaluation

First animation

I changed the animation type from cut out to drawn stop motion. Cut out took too much time and I wasn’t able to finish to I chose to draw it.

At first I’ve created an alternate animation just to have something, which didn’t take a lot of time (around 30 minutes).

This one had a different plot: a little drop flew around the paper and it became a small angel which blew a kiss.

I used a pencil on a simple white paper and was shooting with a phone camera:

1st frame

2n frame

3rd frame

4th frame

5th frame

 

The camera wasn’t positioned in the same place and you could see previous erased drawings on the paper which makes this animation look not professionally made.

This animation was made out of 60 images.
