Essay Poster Inspiration 1 – Animation Sequence Project

May 7, 2015 § Leave a comment

During workshop week I participated in a fairytale workshop, where we learned that during the workshop we would each be completing a small section of the overall animation. Each piece that www ere each given would be 10 seconds long and added together using the square that would be a constant at the start and end of the scene.

Poster Idea 1- Animation

My initial idea was to have the poster animate by unfolding but I quickly moved on from this.

This project then lead on to inspire the concept for how I wanted my essay poster to look. Originally I thought about making my essay poster into an animation because I wanted the poster to reflect the overall message of the essay, which was about how expanded forms of advertising test the boundaries and are not defined by the frame. I felt like I need my essay “poster” to not be something static and stuck to in place, otherwise it wouldn’t fit the essay. There was a part in the animation sequence project (0:56 seconds) that directly inspired how I wanted my animation to work as a short motion paper graphics, using the page turn effect.

The inspiration for this was a project called the Animation Sequence project—>

However the more that I thought about it the more impractical the idea became because it would have to be quite lengthy for the read/viewer to be able to read the text or have some sort of user control to give the user/viewer as much time as he or she might need to read the information. It could also be quite time consuming to completer the animation in the time left to complete the “poster”.
