dc.description.abstract I once heard a female animator say that giving birth to her child was easier than making a film. Making an animation is indeed a very long and arduous task. It takes both the craftsmanship of an artist and the skill of a technician. The making of my film, Chinchi and Eleanor, was no different. It is difficult to explain to the average person exactly how a film is made. Every artist has their own practices, some useful and some just old habits. Animators generally keep to a set of methods that were handed down from the animators before them. My film-making process was similar to the way other films were made, but each experience is unique to the artist. Although computer animation is highly technical the film-making process is still very organic. No two people will share the same path. Whether a film is successful or not is really hard to say. I obviously wanted my film to be successful but unlike the "fine" arts, much of an animation's success is determined by the audience. This can be a disconcerting when your only aim is to please the viewer. It was for this reason I mostly just tried to push my skills to the next level. I wanted to perfect some of my old "tried and true" techniques as well as create some innovative methods. The idea was to create a pleasing film for others but even if I for some reason fell short, I knew that at least I would have progressed my skill level in the process. As an artist, that is all one can really hope for. en_US
