The brief here was to produce a visual interpretation of a narrative text of our choice. Here is my response to the brief in the form of a short film made in After Effects:
Text, sequence and interaction: We were asked to use a piece of string to represent a story of our choice. I chose to do my project based on the film Black Swan. To give it context, I decided to make it into a promotional billboard for the film.
Visualising Data: Creating a system that visualises a set of data of our choice, and shows the relevant relationships between the information. The system that I designed is called the ReadyToWear Colour Finder.
It is an interactive flash piece designed for web, a system you can use to find designer garments in your choice of colour, by your choice of designer, and even in your choice of collection.
The system along with more information can be found in this post
