University Final Project: Divided

May 2020:

I made this animation for my Final Major Project for my third and final year of University. This was quite challenging to make at times due to the pandemic limiting the facilities I had access to but I was able to power through and stay motivated to finish it. The aim of this animation was to show emotions using minimal facial expressions with the hopes of triggering emotions from the audience as well. It is also loosely inspired by the separation of families that occurs due to deportations. This links with my dissertation which was about expressing emotions through body language rather than facial expressions. I received a first for this project.

Some stills from the animation and models.
