I sketched a rough storyboard of the animation and decided to dive right into creating what I was imagining in my head. I wanted to take advantage of all the resources I had at home, so I planned for every verse of the song to be animated in different styles (the first one would be made with hand painted assets, the second out of cut paper/collage, etc). I wanted to continue using the doodles, part of HOOPLA's identity, but the stick figure character was out of place in the colorful world I created. I then looked for further inspiration to help me redesign the character. I looked into things like children's drawings to carry on the doodle aspect of my original plan.

My thoughts about where the animation would go.
