As I mentioned in my sound post, I felt an ‘underwater’ kind of theme to the music so my first research revolved around this. However, I didn’t feel it was very inspiring and it didn’t really express anything that I could feel from the music. However I did like the flow/depth of colours that you could get from the water and ocean.
I decided to go down a different route.
Quite the opposite from underwater, I wanted to go with the idea of birds to accompany the music edits I made (adding bird sound effects). I liked how the music combined with these images because it adds to the ephemeral feeling. Partially empty, partially hopefully, airy, solemn, uplifting, etc. I also added images that inspired me for colour, muted shades and bright glowing oranges (like sunrises), as well as just plain black/white or muted greys to emphasise the light.
These were my main inspirational images:
Diving into research, I looked into the movement of birds by watching videos on youtube, including Disney animated birds / live bird footage.
