nowhere is a motion graphic project that expresses my personal journey of pursuing happiness. To be happy or not happy, people have the choices of their own lives and thoughts. This project shows that positive thinking could lead to better lives through my example.
A short poetic script on how I realized happiness in my life will be expressed in this project through visuals and composition. Every stylized sentence has a particular connection with the inspiring visuals and transitions. The intent of the piece is to install the viewer with the power of positive thinking by reading the poem with graphics and seeing how the story develops, colors, typography, and transitions throughout the whole piece.
nowhere uses a different method of making kinetic typography to discuss more possibilities of integrating motion graphics and typography. It also experiments different techniques consisting of 3D and 2D elements together in the computer graphics field.
