For the past 4 weeks I have been working on a motions graphics project based on the short story by Will Self (read the story here). The project has involved a research booklet including research of the history of kinetic type, motion graphics, an in depth background and look into the story of iAnna and lastly a 20 second title sequence to introduce the story. It isn’t easy! The story is a response to the 9/11 bombing in New York, 10 years later. It looks at themes such as technology and metal illness.
But, the reason for my post is too show my photo edits that I had created in response to the story and use towards a movie poster to advertise it. I created the images using my DSLR camera and then edited them on Photoshop. Here they are!
I wanted to use a glitchy and pixelated effect to enhance the technological themes within the story and I used eyes because it reflects the part of the title ‘i’ and also they say that the eyes are the windows to a persons soul.
What do you think of the story? Thanks for reading!
Love, Molly xo
