ISHMAEL

55 Second book trailer animation comprised of 1300 hand drawn images in charcoal at 10.5" x 8". To express the individualism and temperamental themes in the book, I felt that rotoscoping using charcoal, and voice overlay would be more effective. The result is moody, highly expressive representation of the books story and message.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This book trailer was made to promote the novel ‘Ishmael’ by Daniel Quinn. This book is driven toward philosophical thinkers. The story is unconventional, which called for a unique visual approach with particular attention to mood. To express the individualism and temperamental themes in the book, I felt that rotoscoping using charcoal, and voice overlay would be most effective. The result was moody, highly expressive representation of the books story and message. Capturing the essence of individuality, change, and tension found in the literature.
