I have started to create some of my manifesto statements. The type is started to work really well together but the scale, colour , tone and weight of the different characters – playing with the rhythm of spech in a Yorkshire accent. I think this would be good and also would work well as animated type, but to include an audio element as thats what the project is all about. Which would be the voiceover of what is being said with visuals of the most important parts, popping up or moving somehow to mimic the rhythm of speech.
The map containing the information from the State of the Nation Report needed contextualising in terms of what it was actually showing. This was easily done by just adding the outline of Scotland and Wales.
Moving forward I need to create some more of my manifesto statements and then move into animating them, I will do this by creating storyboards and testing different techniques out.
