Fallen Moon by Jessica Barrera
Video Design for the 2012 Soulocentric Festival.
My friend, the former Cirque du Soliel acrobat, aerial hoop dancer and clown Jessica Barrera, created a show for the 2012 Soulocentric Festival and asked me to animate a portion of it. I was sold the minute she said it involved outer space, aliens, moon rocks and a toilet.
I made some digital puppets in Photoshop and made them into a sequence of animations in After Effects, timed to Jessica’s performance. A goddess dances on the moon, but she encounters a malicious spirit that tosses her to earth, where a series of misfortunes await. At the end she fights with the alien spirit and sucks out it’s soul. The story was told mostly through dance and clown routines, interacting with my projected videos.
