Climate Change, the utmost damaging problem to homo sapiens because it affects the quality of life for everyone. We all have a responsibility to consider the needs of the Earth’s ecosystem of which all life is dependent.
Between August 2019 to March 2020, I directed, coordinated, and served as a Visual Effects (VFX) Lighter, and composited a live-action and 3D senior film at SCAD. The film consists of 20 specialized artists within the VFX’s Department with skill sets in simulations, environment, texture, sound, and motion media design. Greta Thunberg's speech from Ted Talk, "The Disarming Case to Act Right Now on Climate Change” is parallel to my call for action through the use of VFXs. The cinematic blend of light, color, and sound places viewers in a vulnerable state due to the impactful emission of carbon and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
I want the audience to understand the harmful and nearly irreversible impact of the world leader’s and corporation’s selfish actions which has altered the stability of the world’s climate. This transformation has unanticipated consequences now and for future generations. In realizing we are a part of the animal species, we can see how gruesome our own carbon footprints continue to affect wildlife, humankind, and earth our only home which is facing damage beyond repair.
