‘Common Room’, 13 Animators Help Visualize a Poem About Adolescent Angst

Thirteen animators have teamed up to breathe life into the spoken word piece “Common Room” by Talia Randall. The result is a seven minute long animation that brings together a baker’s dozen of different styles to illustrate the tale unrequited love and societal conformity at age 13.

[E]ach of the animators took on a segment of the poem, and worked on it with complete creative freedom. The poem itself speaks of experiences that are very personal, and yet universal. Therefore, we chose to collaborate on a film which enables several designers and animators to share their personal views, experiences and interpretation of the poem.
