Process

Breakdown live stream

The great people over at Mograph Mentor asked me to do a live breakdown of my video "A New Narrative" to teach their students some tips and tricks that I used in the project. 

 
 

 

Storyboard

The story is based on the concept that if there is a new narrative, there has to be an old narrative. So the dark and chaotic old narrative versus the light and geometric new narrative. These would alternate while telling Chimamanda's story through shapes and symbols.

Design

The goal was to create a very atmospheric design, simple and elegant, but still textural and colorful with a strong contrast between the light and dark compositions. 

 

Thank you!
