Abstract Visual Metaphors
Screen Shot 2021-02-04 at 1.10.16 PM.png

Brief

Create an animation that visualises emotional expression through movement with designed shapes, patterns and colours.

Concept

I want to take an illustrated approach and use a character to convey the emotions from my chosen eight words. The words I have initially chosen are: Hungry, Lethargic, Curious, Overwhelmed, Conflicted, Dramatic and Scream. The scenes will be loosely framed as a movie audition and the character will be seen throughout from the shoulders up to give the piece continuity. I want to depict clapper boards between each of my eight words as the transitions to differentiate the scenes and introduce the words to the audience. I may also have the words as subtitles underneath the characters to display the word to the viewer.

Over the course of the project I decided to half the number of words and make each scene longer and more detailed. The final product consisted of four abstract visual metaphors; the words included: Hallucinate, Overwhelmed, Conflicted and Skeptical.
