One of the main aims of this project was to start it and keep producing it no matter how bad it is or how inconsistent the style or formatting is, in order to see how my skills develop as I become better at art and also more proficient at the techniques involved.
This is a project I started in 2011 where I did the first 45 seconds. Then I did a tiny bit in 2013, and maybe 2014 and 2012. I did the rest of it in 2016 and 2017 (2-3 months).
It was interesting seeing how the scenes eventually turned out as apposed to what it was like in my head at times.
I did all the visuals and the music myself, including the story, designing, producing, etc. It is most likely the last "big" project I will ever do by myself, as working with others is better!
As far as an artist statement goes:
This movie is sort of like a day dream that people have, but also having some sort of result in the end, such as meeting someone and making a friend. And to enforce people to imagine more! I think people become great at maths and the sorts because they imagine more; imagine more visualizations, and think deep/big.
A had in mind, creating unique geometry all over this movie, which delves into scene design. Geometry to me, is playing around and exploring all sorts of shapes and compositions, etc.
I created the LIVE one-shot piano recording after making maybe the first 30 seconds, where I focused on this story and its themes whilst playing it. The song ends up ending a bit early, and I decided to keep the silence because it can in a way be suspenseful.
