Final scenes of Watchcat Episode 02

Every year for the past four, I have helped out during Woodbury University's annual 24 hour contest which is organized by Aubry Mintz at Cal State Long Beach. This year's 24 Hour Animation contest 27 schools participating and 124 teams in competition. Woodbury University has 8 teams registered, twice as many as last year. 

Instructors are not allowed to help out in any way, since the students must use what they have learn to create and complete their projects. So, I took this opportunity to work on the last few scenes of Watchcat.
The 24 HOURS 2016 THEME: "There are four kinds of people in the world, Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those who breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you also realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say." P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe
Collins dictionary definition of Wall:
1. a vertical construction made of stone, brick, wood, etc, with a length and height much greater than its thickness, used to enclose, divide, or support
b. (as modifier) ⇒ wall hangings - Related adjective: mural

2. (often plural) a structure or rampart built to protect and surround a position or place for defensive purposes

3. anatomy any lining, membrane, or investing part that encloses or bounds a bodily cavity or structure ⇒ abdominal wall.

4. mountaineering a vertical or almost vertical smooth rock face

5. anything that suggests a wall in function or effect ⇒ a wall of fire, ⇒ a wall of prejudice

Keeping in mind that walls can be both metaphorical and physical...

Create a 30 second animated film that includes a wall in one form or another

Discuss this topic , research, explore, find a point of view and make a 30 second animated film…you have 24 HOURS!!!
