Within third year of university, I studied a module called Short story which allowed me to create any story driven piece. The assignment was very open and allowed for more story theory to be taught. No restriction on media, we were shown examples of books, posters and all sorts.

I decided to go for a After effects motion piece about mental health and social media mental health impacts. Titled 'Silence The Distractions' quite literally promoting less mobile use.

Inspired by stories of others and observation I constructed a university scenario to make the story come to life. Follow the character throughout 3 days, where you see how social media and not enough likes impact her mood (represented by colour). How does she over come leaving her phone at home?

Deliverable: 2D animation/short story (3:05)
