This production shows part of my collection of gems and minerals highlighted by providing specific notations to their chemistry and composition. While organizing the storyboard I wanted to show the beginning of the creation, when minerals are spewed from the center of the Earth. Used some public domain explorations of volcanoes and their caldera.
The piece involved intense manipulation of images, including accented coloration, special lighting, macro photography, animation, motion graphics, and other esoteric effects such as morphing.
The music was key to pace the progress of the presentation. Still some stones left that haven’t seen the light or appeared on the screen 🙂 Perhaps a third chapter on this series may take place in the future.
Enjoy the warmth of the stones,
