Objective: Create a 30-60 second animation to “recall an event or tell tell a short story”.
This brief is very broad and that’s why I set myself some guidelines.
I want my animation to address an issue and have a message.
So for this project I must create a 30-60 second long animation that tells a story and addresses an social issue.
Some examples of these issues are:
- Drug Use
- Drink Driving
- Driving on the Phone
My initial idea was inspired by the below video. Its the introduction to the film “Se7en”.
I like it’s gritty feel and thought it may work well as a message to scare people. Out of the list above I thought Smoking or Drink Driving would probably be the most successful to be done in this way.
I almost don’t want to do this though because it was the first idea I thought of and there should be better ideas in my head.
I did like the idea of parodying something so iconic so I began to think about other iconic motion graphics I could possibly leech inspiration from…
