HIDDEN by Sekani Solomon www.sekanimotiondesign.com
Hidden is a short CG film about self appreciation. Each figure represents emotion: the chain figure is fear; the crystal figure is love and affection; the gold figure is greed and ambition; and the flower figure is joy and happiness.
“The film stems from the idea that we don’t necessarily show our thoughts and feelings to one another – or even appreciate them ourselves,” explains freelance C4D generalist and designer Sekani Solomon, who created the film between client projects over the course of a year. “I wanted to show that these thoughts and feelings are beautiful and make us who we are.”
The conceptualisation stage was hardest, he says. “I particularly liked how the flower shots came out,” he adds, “as those were the most difficult to execute. The face at the end turned out pretty well also – it really helped to humanise the film.”
