Animated Short

        

Approach:
This is an animated short that is a work in progress. It is a passion piece that illustrates how sight, symbolized by light, guides and awakens us, ultimately allowing us to connect with our world.

This project originated as an illustration of eyesight as a gift. The reference to Eos is to the beliefs about vision held by the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that Theia, as the goddess of light, brought sight, and that light shone from men’s eyes to illuminate the world. Eos, the daughter of Theia, is the goddess of the dawn. The narrative follows Eos as she is awoken and guided by the wisps of the forest to a mysterious source of power. The wisps nudge her to connect with this power, ultimately freeing her from her shell and endowing her with the gift of illumination. Eos is subsequently guided to even greater power.

Environmental Reference:
Inspiration was found in assets that would represent such basic elements as trees, rocks, and sources of light. These would populate the unformed and mostly dark world that Eos inhabits before gaining the power of sight and illumination.

Look Development:
Contrast of light and dark was central to the look development. Grainy texture enhanced and highlighted the difficulty of struggling without light and sight.
