For my Seven Deadly Sins project I got envy as my topic. I wanted to convey the danger of envy in this short animation.  I created this feeling through using the inverted photos and flashing back and forth between that and the normal image. This reminds me of old horror movies and creates a sense of suspense and fear.

I wanted to focus on the eye because envy is seeing what others have and being jealous of that. I chose to break up the parts of the eye and animate them in separately. I think that this helps capture the audience’s attention because they cannot tell what it is at first.

As for the color scheme I wanted to keep things simple and mostly black and white. Envy is generally associated with the color green so I want to stick with that as the accent color to highlight specific things. . I wanted the background to be dark to convey that envy is a deadly sin.

I added the part at the end where the grey swirls animate in to show that envy can consume you and take over.  I think that overall it came together nicely and I am happy with the finished product.

The sources I used were just handouts from previous classes because I did not do any animation that I had not previously tried.
