MOVEMENT | Movementadds excitement, drama, and overall compositional interest to an artwork. Images with movement tend to be very eye-catching for this reason; they drag the viewer into the frame, and force the eye to glide along with the moving elements.Movement can communicate mood; and rhythm, line, color, balance and space also play a major role in creating the feeling of movement.
CINEMATIC | The cinematic style that is employed in visual storytelling can be refered to as thecomposition, colour, type of film, camera, lenses, costumes, set design, hair and makeup, filters, editing, and effects used. It is a highly effective storytelling technique that can create images with depth and feeling. There are many ways to create a cinematic visual and we can't wait to see yours!
LINES | Lines areused to create shape, pattern, texture, space, movement and optical illusion. The use of lines allows artist to demonstrate delicacy or force. Curves may take us slowly uphill, or turn sharply twisting our mind as they turn. A line can express various moods and feelings.
