The brief was to create a 30 second motion graphic using abstract forms that reflected the mood of the assigned music.
I was assigned a cut version of ‘House of Woodcock’ from the film 'Phantom Thread'. I attempted to capture the romantic and dreamy nature of the track through my visual language. My motion graphic begins with a starry night time scene and transitions into a brighter, daytime scene after the music picks up halfway.
The motion graphic was loosely based on the idea of a starry night, reflecting the romantic melody of the track. It starts off slow and then the melody becomes more upbeat halfway through which was reflected in the transition from a blue to yellow background.
