It’s been a while since I posted something that inspires me. I’ve been swept up in a whirlwind of film screenings and getting other projects underway, and thus, had little time to share some of my findings.
So during a break the other day, I came across this little beauty:
Now it may not be the most uplifting of topics but it’s informative, visually interesting and even better, the visuals enhance the message. Sharing such devastating statistics and making it interesting would have had me puzzling over how I would even begin to tackle this project for all of eternity. Well probably not, but because I’m tired as it’s the end of the week, it would seem like all of eternity if I attempted it right now. It certainly wouldn’t turn out as cool.
I have always had an appreciation for good motion graphics but have become even more enamored by the really good stuff since having to do my own for my last project, A Raincoat by Sonja Silver. I doubt that I’ll be moving towards using motion graphics exclusively in documentary projects in the near future, but I’d sure love to include something like this.
