Final Statement on Project 3
The reason for choosing the haiku was the agreement between my partners and I on the strong inherent imagery. Moving into the animation I wanted to make smart, informed decisions to make the animation strong and dynamic formally and conceptually. The zoom in transition one takes the viewer through the open door. Soon after the "picture books" snap into the frame and the "paper weights" slam down onto the books to complete my second motif. The picture books exit the frame setting up a formal hint as to what motif was next. The spring time breeze enters the frame and leaves in the same manner mimicking a breeze like flow. There are subtle shifts in the typography that add to the dynamics of the animation. The word open shifts up into the open space of the first motif. "paperweights" comes down and sits on "on picture books." The word "breeze" gracefully fades and shifts to the right exiting the scene. As an animation I am pleased with the outcome. I think for my first time in flash, I accomplished something that isn't overly amateur.
