Based on the development and process behind the short film UGLY, I am planning to continue to explore ways of interactive animation and apply these onto new stories and the existing project “UGLY Kids” and take it further, possibly into a Virtual Reality environment.
Further engagement could include talks about the process and the techniques of interactive animation and UGLY aesthetics.
