Divergence Final

Here is the final for the divergence brief. It is meant to be interactive, so you would hover the mouse over the people yourself to see the pictures but I can't do that on here! So for this I have recorded the screen while I rollover the icons.

The main concept behind it is to show how people all begin the same (which is why there is a grid of identical people), then when you scroll over each person a different image pops, portraying the effect war has on individuals. I have finished it with a video of burning candles to represent all the victims of war, going back to the idea that we are all the same.

Divergence Animation First Attempt!

Here is the first upload of the animation, there is still a lot to do but this is the general idea. The images are going to be positioned better within the grid and when the images pop up the man that it is associated with goes red! Anyway, more to come.

Digital Revolution - Divergence

Thought I should update with what I'm doing for the latest project! Our brief is to make an animation on the theme of divergence so I have been making mine on the theme of war. It is really about war in general, not so much specific wars and should show how war affects different people. I am going to be doing a series of images which run through very quickly. I have tried to upload it  but it doesnt want to work! So I will try again tomorrow. For now, here is a series of images I took at the Keep Military museum in Dorchester. The whole animation is going to be made up of photos, my own ones from museums and other places and from internet/books etc.

The four bottom images are my favourite as they are still images taken from a video, I think they have come out really well, and the blurriness captures that individual moment. Basically the opposite of animation!
