For our thesis film, we explored how differences in form and expression can act as a window into understanding another person, place, and time’s ideology, and thus, reality. Moving from the external to the internal, our film is divided into three acts that investigate the impact of ethereal, material, and individual ideology respectively. These acts are further divided into a series of vignettes. Our film changes medium forms between—and sometimes within—each vignette, using live action, hand-drawn animation, stop-motion animation, 3D animation, claymation, and motion graphics.
