My project from the second year of graphic design studies, Imaging Creation & Animation module.
Let's Animate - Icarus invites you into a captivating world of myths and moral narratives. The myth serves as
a metaphor, cautioning against the dangers of seeking the truth and warning about excessive self-confidence,
wild ambitions, and the pursuit of perfection. Inspired by the Chernobyl series, the animation reflects on global events, particularly the negative impact of nuclear disasters on human life. The character Icar/Bob, influenced
by comic culture, takes risks, questioning the wisdom of his choices. The narrative unfolds as an intriguing opener, exploring the mystery surrounding Bob's actions and his rebellion against a mundane and purposeless existence. Unbound by conventional rules, the animation embraces a stream of consciousness approach, portraying Bob's dark satire and emotional struggles. Bob, a depressive figure, seeks solutions while trapped in routine, reflecting
on his melancholic world shaped by nuclear war.
