For each phase of this project, choose a distinct emotional expression. Adobe After Effects will be used to
create a simple animation that communicates the essence of the expression. In the first phase, the animation is limited
to a single line. Throughout each phase, a different element of motion design will be explored, adding to the
complexity of the animation and providing additional means of communicating character, emotion and personality.
Create each phase as a separate composition (not a new project!). For the final movie, compile all phases/compositions
with a title card appearing between each phase to act as a transition and label. All elements of this project must be
abstract and non-representational.
Consider how pacing, time and space, composition, continuity and rhythm affect the meaning portrayed in the
animation. Experiment with size, direction, interaction and movement of objects.
