ANIMATION

BOOMERANG

Animated short depicting a story of love and loss.

Audio from Yebba's Boomerang 

Animation: Caleb Buckler

Audio: Yebba, Boomerang

With strong grain textures and bright yellows contrasted with rich blacks, my animation of Yebba's song "Boomerang" forms a memory-like state that matches the heartbreak that Yebba's strong vocal runs create. A yellow-filled circle, Yebba, and a gray stroked circle, Yebba's ex-lover, appear through a keyhole and begin a journey into her memory. Yebba's watchful eye, recurringly peers over the story, watching the situation unfolding around it. Swift transitions and bold graphic elements place viewers directly into Yebba's mind. What might they discover?
