In collaboration with Deuss Music, I created an animation video to paint a visual narrative for the music composer, Kate Moore.
Kate Moore featuring Zamore
Duration of Project: 1 month
As part of the selected artists, we had complete creative freedom over the piece.
Knowing this, I let the ideas be felt, instead of analysed.
I listened to the piece and, due to my context, my culture, my experiences, I visualised the word resilience. The piece to me sounded as if a tragedy had occurred. An event with collateral effects that is above you. The ending though, isn't sad, it changes from tragedy to hope. To be continued...
As I grew up in Mexico, I learned that many things don't go as you wish to. You win, but you also loose. You start over again, get up again, try again and give your best, so the next time, maybe you can win. That's how I became aware of resilience.
Kate's piece feels like a remembrance to resilience. To feel the fear, the overwhelming weight of the world on your shoulders, to then surrender to hope.
To find the comfort through the uncomfortable.
For this animation I developed the storyboard by hand. Created the 2D animations in Krita, and polished it in Da Vinci Resolve.
