Light and Shadow References

The short animation films below have provided inspiration to the approach of the  theme of ‘Light and Shadow’ I have chosen as my second project.

From ‘En Suspens’, I particularly enjoyed the latter part of the animation where shadows of people are projected onto the rustic factory-like environments. The effect of the shadows appearing like ink splodges gives a mysterious suggestion of what the place used to be and the remnants of life.

‘Toccata and Fugue’ has a beautiful transitions of its detailed gothic interiors that correspond appropriately with the music. I enjoy the style lighting and the amount of fading to aid in transitions.

In ‘Tale About the Cat and the Moon’, I am also interested in the technique of transition and the use of solid black, grey and white to direct the story of the narrator.
