To create an explainer video, similar to TED-Ed, that describes who I am.
We all struggle to be ourselves because we're not used to being vulnerable. I've realized that it's hard putting yourself out there, from all my life experiences. It had me thinking about who I am or what defines who I am. I wanted to better understand myself, so others could understand who I was as well.
I began writing a script and started recording my voice. I created some mood boards, choosing imagery, and finding background music that could go with the tone of my explainer video. I created style frames to make sure I knew what each scene would look like, this made it easy to later add transitions and create the imagery to match the audio. Since I'm someone who is attracted to textures, my final step was to add some textures and details to my illustrations to enhance the experience and depth to the final piece.
Myself and others. As a motion designer, I wanted to be as honest and as open to everyone around me. This video was to explain who I am the best that I can, in my most vulnerable state. It's created not just for myself, but for motion design agencies and companies looking to create explainer videos of their products/services.
I was accepting myself in my most defenceless state. In the beginning, I didn't realize I was all these things, and when it came together I wanted it to be more personal. Each photo used in this motion piece was taken by me and then later manipulated through Photoshop. I used transitions between scenes to maintain momentum throughout the story. The soothing music and serene aesthetic relax the viewer and draw their attention deeper into the video.
