While working on my design analysis assignment for Visual Language, I gained a set of assets from Haruki Murakami’s website for the cover of his collection of short stories 'After The Quake'. The cover contains a frog, and the short story "Super Frog Saves Tokyo" revolves around a frog, Frog, going to an ordinary man, Katagiri, for help with defeating the dangerous Worm.
While going through After Effects in class for Animation, I brought in my hi-res PNG of the frog and started messing around with it. From there I built different scenes for the frog and the story to progress. Each of the scenes are largely unconnected, and the story lacks a specific narrative. I look at it as my interpretation of Murakami’s story.
