This brief had me create a film that responds to the idea of the new aesthetic. The ideal is about responding to how the digital world impacts our modern day lives. I chose to make a piece about the way in which social media impacts our lives. My eponymous character has just seen a squirrel in the park and posts about it to social media. The responses initially start as positive but then they turn to negative very quickly and the character puts away his phone and continues to walk through the park. Suddenly the messages start to pop up on the world around him and he is trying to escape them by running away.
This was my second motion project at university and proved to be one of the most difficult as I needed to get the character to walk over the pop ups
