An animating instruction on how to overcome mental obstacles caused by negative memories – SUCOCO

An animation project which aims to explain a complicated mental problem through simple visual images and colors, how it can affect ones’ life and ultimately provide a solution to the negativity of memories, which is called SUCOCO. In the video, you obtain knowledge through observing the lives the main characters and how their memories impact them as they grow up, as well as how SUCOCO can potentially assist them as they ran into mental crisis.

The characteristic of the video is nostalgic and simplistic, and I aim to bring out that spirit through a hand made vibe through out the animate process, therefore, I chose to go with frame by frame animation.

For the art style, still embracing the nostalgic element, the art style is often seen in children books that looks like drawings children’s drawing, the strokes are intentionally flawed, with minimum character color filling that is just enough for recognition and uniqueness throughout the video.

As mentioned, the character filled colors are just for recognition, and contribute little to the overall atmosphere of the scenes, in fact, they act as secondary element to support the main colors that define the moods of the video, background colors. For each mood, there is a certain background color that helps bringing out the energy to the fullest, characters’ color will also change depending on the current background. There are four total atmosphere throughout the video.

Along side with background themes, line art animation also contribute to bringing out the mood of the characters and scenes, specifically line movements that directly show the emotions of characters, the line’s shape, density and amount can directly evoke certain feelings according to research.

Some main ways of promoting your Youtube video is through physical merch, especially with a memorable key message like the technique SUCOCO, the printed product can act like a reminder for people to actively remember about conducting the technique, therefore they should be items that people interactive daily, like mugs or keychains. Digital wise, due to the nature of the video, which is usually part of a psychology Youtube channel, the common way of promoting a video is usually through posts on social media platforms that doesn’t really have addition visual effects.
