For my master’s thesis project, I, along with a group of collaborators, created an opening title sequence for the 2013 Art2Wear fashion show held on the campus of North Carolina State University. The theme for the 2013 show was “Hypernatural”. The goal of the sequence was to capture the hypernatural theme and the dynamic, collaborative, and innovative spirit of the show through a hybrid media approach.
Dark Night of the Soul is the second project I’ve shot on 16mm film with an Arriflex SR3 camera. Inspired by a song of the same name, the structure of the film is nonlinear and influenced by Surrealism and irrational dream logic.
You are Anonymous is a reflection on the way controlled environments and extreme situations can shape and alter a person’s identity or sense of self. Inspired by the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment, the film examines the relationship between the role of the controller verses the controlled.
Absurd Hero is based on Albert Camus’s interpretation of the myth of Sisyphus. In the myth, Sisyphus is punished for being deceitful and thus doomed to push a massive boulder up a mountain for eternity. I decided to adapt this story because it gave me the opportunity to focus on character animation through the actions of my main character’s physical struggle up the mountain. The visual style of the film is based on simplicity and the use of simple geometric shapes to convey a story.
