Starry Night


My impression (yes, that is a pun) of Van Gogh's beautiful and very popular Starry Night painting - I began work on this new animation project on the 22nd. This was something I have wanted to do for sometime, but I have a lot of ideas that I want to pursue and I set them aside because there are bigger projects that I am working on. I tried to ignore this just the same, but there is a painting hanging above the bed and every night I see it, until finally I could resist no longer. Now that I am finished with the animation, the painting will speak to me in a different way. I worked very hard on this animation every day (and night), and I am so happy to have it completed. You will be able to see the actual development of the animation itself, in this piece ~ I'm calling it a "work in process animation". Oh, and when you see the first credit, it's not the end it's the middle and it's an indicator that you will be going backwards... come watch the full animation. I look forward to your thoughts.

I love this, Gina! So creative. It is my favorite of all your work, except maybe the nanomedicine work with Rob Freitas.
Best wishes,
Chris

I'm so glad! When you make something like this you think it's a great idea, but when you hear it from other people, you know. Thank you for letting me know : )

Fantastic! I love what you have done here - very cool. The way it draws you into the painting and causes you to notice the various elements is a wonderful idea. Well executed.
