"Snakey Love" is a four-minute long animated graduate thesis film. The short features a female snake who pursuits her love for everyone that seems to be a snake shape, but she always fails because they are all not interested in a creature that is not their same species. However she finds her lover at in end by accident (Because there really was an accident). This short film is a 3D (three-dimensional) computer animation, which means that the final vision appears on the screen was generated by using computer 3D software. It is all done by a series of different processes like modeling, shading, rigging, lighting, rendering, etc. This paper analyzes and delineates the entire process of making this film from five different main stages. They are ideas, pre-production, production, post-production, and final conclusion and experiences.
