Once I had the image I wanted to work with (Post 1) and a general structure/framework (Post 2) I began animating. I started by doing a few quick sketches to plan the motion path: As usual, the first one was for warm up but not very satisfying, the motion was too stiff, not much going on… Read more »
The work that I had done in preparation to the workshop was primarily finding the structure of the piece. In the past I have been resistant to the idea of writing scripts or producing story-boards, not because I think they are not important, but because they felt foreign as a form of putting the ideas for my… Read more »

In this case, earthquake data from colombia gathered from Ingeominas and terrorist attacks data from the Centro Nacional… Read more »

I wanted to see how I was doing on my film by putting the latest stage of each cycle on top of the map/structure of the piece. Getting close to the end only a few weeks before picture-lock.
Found this wikipedia article on causal loop diagrams and thought of the parallel this idea seem to have with the map I’ve created to structure my film. This is helping a lot to find ways on visualizing how things develop in time on such systems. At the end this is what I am trying… Read more »
