Empathy Animation

A short animation about a man finding himself

Based on a poem by Harun Yahya, where a man finds himself living the same repetitive life everyday until he compares himself to a bird and sets himself free. This animation is digitally drawn frame-by-frame using Adobe Photoshop based on imagery primarily photograhed around my apartment. Each student was randomly assigned a word from basic human needs, based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. I was assigned "Empathy" and wanted to create something less literal towards the meaning, and explore frame-by-frame animating to challenge myself, and stray away from shapes and objects with special effects in Adobe After Effects.
