- Art direction
Streamers is a webseries on the culture of video-game streaming that uses Twitch codes, graphic universe, language and broadcasting tools. After 4 years of immersion in gaming live-streams, the ONF and Arte launched a documentary in fall 2017. Through the prism of video game and streaming platform Twitch.tv, “Streamers” examines the desire to be part of something greater than oneself in today’s hyper-connected era.
What I did ?
As an art director and co-animator, I designed and animated a visual language to illustrate the voice over narration. The art direction is raw, with high levels meaning visuals to allow viewers to focus on narration. I worked around 3 primary colors associated with glitch and GIFs to illustrate the gaming culture.
