Taika Waititi’s “telling our stories” by Polyester Studio

Polyester Studio tagged me in to collaborate on an exciting project for the Toronto International Film Festival. They were creating a video based on an interview that featured Taika Waititi talking about the importance of cultures telling their own stories. My role was to conceptualize and design styleframes for the second half of the narration. I focused on emphasizing keywords from each line of dialogue with abstract or symbolic imagery, and creating storyboards to get across my ideas for the potential direction of the animation.
