The deadly sin that I selected was pride. Originally, I was using the allegorical story of the Tower of Babel as my inspiration, but through some wonky art direction, and new ideas thrown around, it ended up having more of a Tower of Pizza theme. The animation shows the tower being built, then the weather changes and the scene becomes slightly ominous as it tilts dramatically. It’s still a story about how, as humans, we are often very pride full in thinking that we have the greatest technology and innovations, but we can still fail when our pride gets in the way. The animation style is lighthearted and comical. I tried to keep the style simple and bright- nothing too serious.
