Since we are starting from scratch, although not totally, we need to go through the most arduous process of brainstorming ideas!
We have been thinking along the lines of flowers, trains, countryside etc., visuals that fit the song’s mood. I think we would eventually be settling down on a simple narrative along these lines.
Vivien told me she likes the idea of a train station, because it’s a point of convergence, a very similar concept to affinity. That’s great!
In the song, there are also parts where we both saw a night sky, which gives us the chance to think about mixed media opportunities for animation.
It’s time to continue brainstorming and sketching, putting these puzzle pieces together. Ishu also suggested the idea of cards so we can shuffle around images, just like the traditional way of editing a film. I should be painting, too.
