In this motion design exercise, I had three objects from the popular video game, Animal Crossing, transition into each other. In the latest installment of the series, players can cut down trees with axes to get wood to build houses. I followed this theme by having the three transitional objects be the villager, the tree, and the house.

Project Development
I started by making a storyboard to plan out how I would animate the video. The final product came out very similar, but the most noticeable difference is the transition between the house and the villager. Considering the eleventh panel is a little frightening, I figured a simple open door animation would be more fluid and less scary.
