"THE STORY OF…" – A MOTION DESIGN PROJECT
As part of a class on After Effects software, third-year Graphic Design and Motion Design students at LISAA Paris had to produce a short video with sound animating the story of a famous person – or someone who should be. The graphic design had to correspond to the story of the character chosen.
A STRONG GRAPHIC DESIGN IDENTITY
One team chose to create a video entitled "Snowden". "We chose Snowden as we wanted to create a social critique. He was all over the news at that time and his role in the world corresponded to the theme that we wanted to address," Arthur Boulicaut summarises.
Our angle was to play with digital and IT, bugs, whether in the treatment of the image, colour grading or the transitions.

The graphic design identity was chosen in accordance with the choice of Edward Snowden: amongst other things, he worked on software and coding development. "Our angle was to play with digital and IT, bugs (a glitch effect), whether in the treatment of the image, colour grading – electric blue, computer screen blue – or the transitions."
VOTE FOR THE ARTE COMPETITION!
The video was submitted to the animated short film competition for French schools – Court-Circuit – launched by ARTE. You can vote for the film “Snowden” until the 31st May on the ARTE competition website.
