Reds & Whites
This animation was created, from start to finish, by my colleague Dima Nowarah and myself within the span of three weeks. We worked with traditional media, Procreate, Photoshop, After Effects, and Premier Pro.
The brief came from Scottish non-profit, Beltane Fire Society. In the wake of COVID-19, they wanted to take their typically larger-than-life live performance ritual and translate it into an online format. I proposed an animation that established and explored the relationship between two concepts – ‘red’ chaos, energy and ‘white’ order, strength.
On the night leading into May 1st, every year, these two concepts are embodied by two groups of people. Dima and I decided to tackle the complicated union between concept and personhood, and animated this piece that transitions between abstract and solid form.
