Animated Poster Part 2: WIP

August 4, 2020

After the classes introducing animation and gestalt, I began to rethink my approach to the poster. I decided to explore the themes of presence and vacancy and use the symbol of the keyhole as a frame of transition between these two states.

I also wanted to use the durational and spacial constraints of the assignment for this phase. The poster’s size is 1080 x 1920 pixels and I’ve set the duration to 8 seconds. The very vertical aspect ratio kind of guides you away from horizontal action.

Most of the movie is washed in a warm red color. Only in the final scene, set in Angkor Wat, are we relieved of this wash and cool blues and greens come to the forefront.
