Key Art Selects

"The concept is the story of a young artist commissioned to create her most ambitious work yet. We follow her through an exploration of self, along with the many states that creating can lead you to. I fed off the emotions I was experiencing making these titles; emotions such as curiosity, excitement, anxiety, passion, fear, helplessness and sacrifice. In the end it's these devices that became the foundation for the piece resulting in the artist leading herself to selling out and giving away her soul."

Key Art Exploration

Working on the overall Art direction by using some early Key Art to design some type with. Didn't end up going in this direction but I personally loved exploring all these images.

Title Design
Explorations

Tasked with visual exploration, I explored wildly colorful and interesting patterns to create styles that are uncommon. I wanted to build something that would be in complete contrast to the moody atmosphere of the rest of the film.

Building these all using After Effects and Cinema 4D allows me to iterate quickly and use different tenchiques to create something unique.

Poster Explorations

The team was looking for a way to make the Shadow section a vital transformation in the process of creating art. During the process of exploration, I tried various ways to create something imposing and strange through the use of patterns and environment.

The hands and how the shadow figure interacts with our protagonist was a vital moment. These explorations show a few variations on how the Shadow would grab the character and start to feed off of their energy.

Echo
Exploration

My process for exploring visuals starts in After Effects where I can quickly build comps based on layers and have everything update based on small changes. Working like this brings alot of flexibility and allows for more variations in a shorter timeframe.

I was able to build these clouds backgrounds using only layers of noise, all procedurally. This made it extremely easy to add some keyframes and have a completed shot within a few hours.
