Abstract

Animation as a medium has broad appeal based on its ability to convey stories in universal ways. This art form bridges cultural barriers that allow relationships to form through shared interests. Music also shares similar traits. Based on the global understanding of music and its history of use in film, the conclusion is the acceptance of different musical tastes can parallel acceptance of differing ideologies. When clashing ideological beliefs cause societal conflict, it is essential to remember that friendships cultivate through commonalities. The purpose of this study is to create an animated short film that presents the story of two very passionate characters who overcome distinctions in their preferred musical genres to form a companionship. Producing this film involved creating environments, writing characters with opposing personalities, and developing a musical score that accentuates the characters' emotions and actions.
