Reflexion

Reflexion

This 3D animation takes place inside the bathroom of a nightclub, where a girl is high on MDMA and sees herself in the mirror. Her reflection in the mirror shows her jaw moving, eyes rolling, and slowing dancing to the music until she hears a girl screaming, which pulls her out of that trance moment and walks out of the scene. It is not know whether she has been drugged or decided to take the drug herself, but this is not the matter of importance. This scene is a reflection with many questions opened for the audience to resolve. I want to express the mystic experience of drugs which can be both scary and seductive.

This project was 3D modelled and animated in Autodesk Maya, and then compiled and edited in After Effects, in 2018.
