Personal Pitch

Idea :

My idea for this project is a continuation of my final project from Dynamic Imaging 1. The emphasis for that project was the psychoanalysis of myself done within Cinema 4D and After Effects. The main idea behind this project was to showcase my inner thoughts through the process of automatic drawing and showcase it through a number of techniques taught to me from the class. This project will focus on portraying the seven chakras through a variety of techniques that stem from the idea of automatic drawing, except the emphasis is now on dictating emotion through the history of the chakra, what it means, the mudra that comes with it, the sound, and the colors.

Programs :

The programs that I am mostly using for this project is After Effects CS5, the optional programs for this process is Processing, Actionscript 3.0, and OpenFrameworks. If there are some plugins available to assist me that are free then they will be used on my home computer so that the school isn't charged.
