The Old Inspiring the New

 In A thought, Projects

During my senior year of High School – when I still thought computer science was for me *shudders* – I was enrolled in a very basic video course. In this class we were tasked with creating a stopmotion project. The stiffness of stopmotion inspired me to do something choppy and unnatural. It ended up being a Frankenstein-inspired tale of creator versus creation featuring a picture come to life. This project is not anywhere on the Internet at the moment, but it is one of my proudest video/photo creations, despite my lesser skills at the time.

Now, when tasked with telling a tale in way less pictures than even that for a “Cine Roman,” I feel inspiration from my prior work. The creator versus creation tale is not a new one by any means, but I’m a huge fan of it, and I believe there is plenty of interesting ways to twist and change the tale and still tell the message. Why is the creation/ servant/ offspring turning against its master? What justifies rebellion? How can what gives us life also oppress us?

I am still waiting on a faithful movie adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel.
