please excuse the amateur footage, I shot it without a tripod!..
Anyhow, this is a short test piece that shows my concept and idea behind my self-promotion piece.
In case you are confused, my concept is based on the fact that I see myself as a multi-disciplined, versatile designer, and so my idea is to use play-doh (or some other type of moulding material) as a symbolic, visual metaphor for my design skills and approach.
Using this material, I want to create a stop-frame animation.
One idea I’m working on is that my character (that’s me) finds itself stuck in difficult situations - here showing the character getting stuck inside the computer screen - and manages ways to get out of these situations. This idea will show problem solving skills, on top of demonstrating other design skills, such as pre-production and adaptability.
Another idea I want to explore is producing numerous gif animations of my play-doh, mouldable character, doing things/stuff that depict me as a person but also as a designer. I would have to look at what I could use in a metaphorical sense that would depict this.
It’s all fun and games, but in a serious kind of way.
