Artist Statement:

For my final project I decided to animate book covers. These are the books I used:
• Cockroach by Rawi Hage
• The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi W. Durrow
• Go Tell It On The Mountain by James Baldwin
• From Polaroid To Impossible by Hatje Cantz
• Grin by Adam Danielski
• A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
• The Godfather by Mario Puzo
• Vampire Academy – Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
• The Chronicles Of Vladimir Tod by Heather Brewer
• The Widow’s Redeemer by Philippa Jane Keyworth
I wanted to do animation again because I liked the second project I worked on where I got old paintings to move. I decided to use book covers this time because I felt they’d give me more content to animate with. I created the animations in the same way as I did the last time. I used multiple layers, placing the sections I wanted to move on different layers than the main picture. I had things disappear and reappear by either using the opacity function or by slowly dragging them onto the screen.
