Play 2 Create : Narrative of a Film expressed in animation

This was a university brief on learning the basics of Flash and actionScript. I chose the film Control at the time as I was personally engaged in the many books and documentaries surrounding Ian Curtis, Joy Division,Factory Records and the Manchester Movement of the late 1970’s. A fundamental aspect of the brief was to encapsulate the key themes of the narrative without running through a step by step guide to the movie, after really engaging with the film I set my animation in what would seem an old black and white television set, this would prove very affective in animating any buttons or key actions as I could subtly introduce colour as a wayfinding system around the site. I researched lots of photography books from the Manchester, industrial moments of the late 70’s to get that real gritty feeling of the time. I felt the older photography I aquired along with photos of my own, and stills from the film really blended well together and I felt the animation flowed really well.
