"LE COUPLE" is an animated graduate thesis film with a total timescale of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. The intent of "LE COUPLE" is to talk about a story of love, but not in a clichéd manner. Since Jieting Chen and I worked together before, we have a very strong personal connection. As usual, we wanted to make the film into a comedy.
The film is a hand-drawn animation that was produced primarily in TVPaint Animation Software.
This paper outlines the entire film creation process from my point of view. It details the very beginning of the story development to the final moments of finishing the film. It describes all my intentions, obstacles, failures and successes, as well as technical specifics of process.
