For animation class, we were tasked with making a 30 second stop-motion animation with a character. Using Dragon Stop Motion, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premier, we shot and compiled a short animation called “Trash”.

In it, we brought to life a piece of trash who comes to life when someone unsuccessfully throws it in to the trash basket, and takes upon itself the mission of going back home. After many attempts of jumping back in, getting super frustrated in the process of going “home”, dragging objects to use as high platforms, it gets lucky when someone else walks by and makes the task easy for it.

Here’s the final edit:
