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 : )
“Alesse” digital (PS) 2009
I really like looking though some of my older stuff and comparing to my stuff now. The story here is that she is royalty and is unsure how to best use her powerful elixir. Use it for selfish reasons or should she protect herself and trust no one?
