Tall Buildings

MOTION+ILLUSTRATION

2018

Tall Buildings is an abstract visualisation of a poem by the Indian poet Munib-ur-Rehman. The Urdu poem highlights the extent of growing urbanisation around us and its impact on humanity. This project was done as an attempt to understand visual narratives and to explore the basics of animation through the means of Adobe After Effects. 

Stills from the animation

Initial sketches and development of storyboard- listing keywords and using the method of abstraction to develop a storyboard.

Colour and texture variations of the frames from the storyboard. The attempt was to bring about a contrast between the cold of the concrete and warmth of mankind.

Visualising a social media presence, that could serve as a platform to recognise unsung poetry from Indian poets through the means of artists and animators.
