This short animation for Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” was created in After Effects after an extensive image making exercise that involved creating 72 initial images across a variety of media and then hybridizing those images to create another 36. The animation only included imagery from this pool.

Before embarking on this process, we were to listen to our chosen song and select three words that we felt best described it. The words I chose were omniscient, conspiratorial, and assured. The 72 images were developed with these words in mind.
