This time, I want to create an animation that visualizes a song. I always like visualization. When I listen to my favorite songs, I will picture the melody and the lyrics in my mind. Also I saw the animation that Ashley sent us. I like how the image change and match the lyrics. Inspired by my favorite song's MV, an animation called "Semi Permanent Titles", and a short story by Haruki Murakami(ON SEEING THE 100% PERFECT GIRL ONE BEAUTIFUL APRIL MORNING), I decided to use my animation to tell a very short story. The screen will be divided into two. First of all, I like the symmetrical beauty: Semi Permanent Titles. The left side looks exactly like the right side.
Secondly, I want to use the two sides to express the story. There are two characters in the story, a girl and a boy. They're so similar, and they're right for each other. They are the 100% perfect person to each other. But they are divided by a wall, by the time, by the distance.
Recently, my favorite song is Already Home from A Great Big World.
