Happy September everyone. Checking in with another update tonight, a new animation from some lovely source material featuring Daft Punk and Milla Jovovich. Read on for my director’s commentary but first, please check out Compromised.
These things start, as they so often do these days, stumbling across a low-res version of this image on Tumblr. I stared at this photo trying to imagine what else, beyond mind control, the original intent could have possibly been. Satisfied that there could be no other intent, I concluded that the original artist intended erotic mind control as the central theme and, therefore, I should help that person out by pushing their work where they already wanted it to go.
So, what I’m saying to the photographer in question is…you’re welcome. 😉
Anyhoo, this picture is the sort that just immediately inspires everything that will follow. The spiral light effect and the general direction of the story formed in my mind quite rapidly. Then, it was just a matter of putting those pieces together.
I must also mention my good friend Tabico because I was quite inspired by the capture sequence that occurs early in her infiltration epic Rogue. The gloves the boys from Daft Punk are wearing suggested a sci-fi angle to the narrative and Tabico’s tale immediately sprang to mind.
A big tip of the hat to her for inspiration throughout the creation of this piece. I hope you enjoyed this latest manip and, as always, your comments, questions, and suggestions are welcome.
