In this project, I wanted to experiment with using abstract visuals to create a sense of dread. Although abstract, the sequence implies the plot of the film through shapes reminiscent of space.


Initial animation storyboard
Examples of footage manipulation

The technique for creating the sequence was inspired primarily by the works of Ruslan Khasanov and Thomas Blanchard. I mixed paint with milk, oil, and soap, then filmed. The resulting video was then heavily manipulated in After Effects.
