Univ. of Texas: "Reading Race"

Univ. of Texas: “Reading Race”

It’s no quick or certain path to creating a video for a public university on a topic as sensitive as race. Much deliberation and rewriting and editing took place as we (the professors and myself) tried to hone the message and the best images/animations to accompany the voiceover. Perhaps my favorite moment came as I was struggling to figure out a good animation regarding the emphasized word “Power”, and after some suggestions from the professors I grabbed onto their idea of referencing the WWII Japanese internment camps that the USA implemented which led me to a treasure trove of Ansel Adams photos he took of some camps. I had so much fun tearing apart the image to create some depth, and giving it a vintage film style.
