“Mythos” (2018) From the website: For centuries the Greek Myths have been used as cautionary tales and teaching tools for people both young and old. These stories convey deep wisdom about the human condition which continue to resonate with us. I wanted to honor these ancient stories by interpreting them in the age of the pixel and gif. The challenge was to communicate these complex stories in the most minimal way possible while retaining their essence. By having each vignette loop seamlessly, the timeless and perennial nature of these stories are reinforced. Ultimately these animations serve as visual shorthand for ancient truths which are as relevant today as they were when first told. Role: Direction & Design: Stephen Kelleher, Modeling & Animation: Chris Guyot, Sound Design: John Poon. Featured in Vimeo, Behance, and Motionographer.
