A friend of mine sent this to me earlier this week and I felt it was especially relevant to the project we’re doing right now in terms of the concept of moving poetry. The way they created this struck me:
“We approached the production much in the same way the poem reads, step by step, drawing one frame after the other without knowing before hand where it would take us.”
Because it was so similar to how we had to animate using keyframes and how I personally took my poem line by line word by word to inspire the story behind my storyboard.
Overall loved the smoothness of the animation, the use of negative space in the sketches, and the overall minimalist yet powerfully expressive style of it.
