Poetry In Motion
A personal project based off the poetry of Rupi Kaur, using audio of the poet narrating her own poem. The aim was to create a visual and audible medium to consume the poem.
This was a collective way to practice animation skills that had been taught halfway through schooling, while getting to use techniques learnt outside of class that hadn't had a chance to be perfected. Because of the content of the poem, a specific decision was made to use very feminine and soft elements. The piece is meant to convey the delicate strength that Kaur writes about: delicacy in the type and movement, strenth in the colour and imagery.
Created entirely in After Effects, with a focus on natural, organic movement and smooth animation.
