Abstract

Tomato is a two-dimensional, animated, short film about the interaction between a farmer and a tomato plant. Through conceptually-driven technique, the film intends to relate the emphasis of tactility and self-reflection in animation to the care of a plant that could provide a valuable fruit. Using digital tools, like Adobe Animate, Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere, as well as material identification techniques, I created the film as an exhibition of a method designed to integrate hand-crafted elements into digital workflow.
