LORD OF THE 

FLIES TRAILER

Motion

I created a book trailer for Lord of the Flies, which is one of my favorite classics because of its use of symbolisms to discuss a rather dark and deep motif. I took the opportunity to explore the symbolisms in the book again and found ways to represent them through visuals and motions.

Process

The process involved brainstorming, creating a storyboard followed by color choice and visual style, then finally creating the illustrations for the main symbolisms and illustrative types.

To create a short trailer for a classic book that recalls its theme and motif through the use of visual language and motion. There also need to be a protagonist involved.

I visualized the four main symbolisms (conch for "order", glasses for "civilization", fire for "hope" and the pig head for "savage" or "basic human desire") and turned them into four stages that represent the loss of innocence and humanity in the characters. I used a fly as the protagonist who ventures through all four symbolisms till it reaches the final dark end, alluding to the gradual transformations of the characters. The background and illustration style are aligned with the tone of voice of the book.
