Featured Animator: Shishiden Studio - Goonies 'R' Good Enough (Music Video)

GoAnimator Shishiden Studio  is the March winner of my GoAnimate, Get Featured in TET's Blog contest. Shishiden has had an account with GoAnimate since January of 2013 and in that time has achieved a following of 93 fans and created 17 animations.

Shishiden Studio chose to feature a music video, Goonies 'R' Good Enough, saying about the choice:
I have selected this animation for a few reasons. This animation was actually for a contest to win a fan. It was out of my comfort zone because I have never done a music video much less messed with anything else other then the Anime style. After completion of the animation, I felt I have leveled up and improved as an animator. 
When I think about this animation, it reminds me this was the first step into becoming a serious animator.
There is no attempt here to recreate the original music video nor even recreate scenes from the film. Instead Shishiden animates an original story using GoAnimate's Chibi Peepz theme. Keep reading after the video form more of Shishiden's behind the scenes commentary.

Inspiration

Goonies R Good Enough by Cyndi Lauper is a soundtrack for the classic movie The Goonies. I choose this song for a video because at the time I just recently finished watching the movie and wanted to do a video I doubt anyone else had done. I then took a look at the actual video for the movie and, although its pure nostalgia, the video did not make sense with the lyrics to me.

My inspiration was purely listening to Cyndi voice and the nostalgic beat along with it. That was all the fuel I needed for my imagination to take over.

Challenges, Problems, and Techniques

The biggest challenge was how to approach making this music video in general. I knew I would have to make this into a love story with a happy ending. Writing story's is second nature to me so that was not a problem. The challenge is fitting the story with the lyrics and stay on beat. This problem was solved quickly by just having the knowledge how to use the video maker in general.

As far as techniques go nothing was extravagant or complicated for this animation. I wanted to focus on simple yet effective camera work with no overly complicated backgrounds.I think in the end It gave a professional and efficient style that sets this animation apart from the rest out there.
