Motion graphics & story development
The project was to create a one minute motion graphics piece for my motion design class. The project was open-ended to anything we wanted to make, so I decided to create a simple animated short. I made the simple story of a girl who is practicing to be better at soccer.
I based this project from my love comic books and soccer. My intention for the project was to create a story out of one moment, have a meaningful sentiment, and be something most can relate to.
Colors and shapes were influenced by Latin muralist like Marlon Pruz and Farid Rueda. All transitions were based around comic-book action transitions to add to the childish wonder and pride that the character feels. The music was made through Garageband with my creative partner Michael Crafts.
