we can be heroes
Adobe Design Achievement Awards Semifinalist: Motion Graphics Category.
"We Can Be Heroes" is a motion graphics short that captures the essence of the human spirt through a personal narrative on running. My father’s story centers around the idea of man conquering both physical and mental adversity and building a sense of communion with other runners, space and yourself. A runner starts something, steps in some dark spots along the way and comes out the other side stronger and filled with pride. Anyone can be their own hero and a hero to someone else.
The design centers around the theme of a circle. This represents the cyclical nature of running, repetition and oneness. Simple lines represent movement, balance and imbalance. The combination of the two throughout the piece aims to take you on this runner’s journey and illustrates it’s highs and lows.
