Project Description

Sunride, is a 2D linear narrative animated short film that follows a journey to experience freedom. It is a meditation on cycling, animation of motion. The cyclist has a desire to cycle, to ride his bike. If they are not moving, they are not living. Just like the cyclist, we must keep going forward through the many obstacles that we face on our journey. Should we be content on where we are, or should we seek other satisfaction? The film shows an interpretation of movements of a cyclist through various experimental animation techniques and a unique colour palette.
