Charles Barkin’: Monster Slayer

Charles Barkin’: Monster Slayer is a 2D animation by Imani Brown. Students were asked to select a combination of twenty nouns, adjectives, and verbs. They were then asked to write and animate a story using all twenty words. Using chosen words such as “Charles Barkley,” “princess,” and “monster,” the story follows a dog named Charles Barkin’ who loses his car in what is known as the “Monster Territory.” He then goes on an adventure to retrieve it. The creation process included project planning, project management, storytelling, character design, environment design, 2D hand-drawn animation, 2D animation within Adobe After Effects, and original sound design.
