Annamaria, sempre vestita di nero

The project is the animation of a single quote of 500 characters from a book, in this case "Lessico del Cinema Italiano" by Roberto de Gaetano, a collection of essays about italian cinema.

The video needed to follow to strict rules: using only typographic shapes and using only black and white in the animation. The quote was chosen with these limits in mind: it talks about how in a movie from the '60s in a certain set of scene the color is used as if the movie was black and white.

The animation is divided in two parts: the first, where Annamaria's character is shown, represented only by the letter A and in the scenarios described in the quote, and the second, where a series of concepts about the use of color are represented with the use of certain kinetisms and the alternation of black and white.
