Motion Graphics Sequence in "Letters from Pyongyang"
We needed a visual sequence based on stills to demonstrate a quick rundown of a Korean family tree. I visited several museums in Korea and was inspired by traditional roof tiles and patterns. The movement was based on cells dividing riffing off the family tree theme. I pieced together elements in After Effects to get the final look that was true to tradition yet modernized in my style and voice.
Excerpt of the final sequence from "Letters from Pyongyang"
These are traditional Korean roof tile covers - and not coins contrary to popular assumption. I used them as a decorative device and alluded to cell division riffing off the family tree theme.
A common pattern seen throughout South Korea in buildings & elevators.
