An Animated Geometric Abstraction — A purposefully ambiguous, animated Self Portrait, depicting the life of continuous relocation, adaption, and more.
Made under the guidance of Shira Inbar
01 — Inspiration:
The main inspiration for this motion piece was from flat and geometric motion graphics. More specifically, I was inspired by Apple's Wonderful Tools animation as well as Made in California animation. They both captured the simplicity and elegance I was looking to create with my self portrait motion.
02 — Storyboard and Stills:
I made several storyboards, experiementing with ideas of transparency and blurring shapes. I eventually ended up using a square to represent me, in a world of other shapes and sizes.
Select frames from the final animation. Watch it below.
03 — Final Animation:
The final animation was the culmination of these different ideas, representing me in different (hectic) environments, along with music that was layered with the cacaphonies of New York City.
