The Process ︎

Paint, Scan, Animate 


This animation was one of the early stages of my experimentation with mix media techniques. Stepping away from the computer, opened a new tool set for my creative process. Inspired by the teachings of Steve Viola who taught me the value of compositing and smart concept development. Using scanned paint strokes in conjunction with 3D elements, I was able to give the simplified design of the title an extra element of grit and movement.
