As a part of my projects between projects, this is story 1: Isolation. I storyboarded this almost two years ago (before I worked at MIU Entertainment), and just recently made it into a soundless animatic. From story 1 to story 2, I can see a progression and see what my proclivities are as a storyteller. The main character is deaf and he is further and further isolated.
This has been an ongoing “project between projects”. When I was working on many Consumer Insight stories at TMRC Shanghai, I realized that I needed to make my own projects based on what I had understood of story-craft. So I decided on 3 small stories with the themes Isolation, Identity and Vanity. This is the Identity piece and I am deciding to divide it into sections since I am using a gif. I will put it up on my website http://www.dwanart.com once it is finished as a video and I will put my thoughts and notes about the entire process as a separate post later : )
