Prompt: Create a project inspired by your dreams or memories.

To fit my original inspiration, I decided to go with the idea of a factory producing something that we know as peaceful, comforting, and soft. That is how I landed on a Teddy Bear Factory. I thought an animation would be the best way to make my project since I could incorporate the sounds of the gears and it could help me tell the story. To achieve the unearning feeling I was aiming to get across, I got inspiration from one of my favorite games, Samarost, which uses real images and textures that places its world in the uncanny valley. I used real images to create my animation with a combination of photoshop and Premiere Pro.
