Following a theme of adventure, this motion piece is inspired by Albert Lamorisse's 1956 French film Le ballon rouge (The Red Balloon). Set to the music of "Foux Du FaFa" by Flight of the Conchords, my work follows three letters, set in Century, Baskerville, and Futura, as they explore outside the world of a book with the help of a heart-shaped balloon.
Using simple sketching to identify key frames and themes, I created a storyboard that was used to position and photograph the letters. Materials used include laser-cut black mounting board, construction paper, and string.
