My final major project animation for uni.
The main character’s ‘story’ is based on the brutal life of Shoko Tendo (author of Yakuza Moon), highlighting her links to the Yakuza, early drug abuse and string of abusive relationships.
Through this short animation I wanted to visually represent tattoos as not only a form of art but as a visual life story, illustrating struggles, victories, good and bad memories and the empowerment it gives the wearer.
Made in Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Flash CS5 and iMovie.
Music by Exist Immortal and Kurt Valencia
