1. Behaviour & Interaction
– Use just two shapes: a circle and a line/rectangle.
– Define a type of behaviour for each shape (e.g. aggressive, flighty, ponderous, playful, jumpy, smooth, erratic, etc.)
– Design a storyboard for a 30 second animation in which one or more circles and lines express their behaviour and interact with each other at some point. In 6-8 drawings show the key points that describe the piece.
– Create a 30 second animated video based on the storyboard.

Assignment Due: Apr 25.
