It’s easier to be a follower than a leader. The repetition of this behavior defines the rules of society. In turn, it creates an inescapable cycle. Through our three short narratives, we want to bring awareness to the corruption in society. Using geometric objects as our main characters, we inject them with humanistic characteristics to create an emotional connection with the audience. By using recognizable sounds, we create a connection between the abstract world and reality. We explored self-doubt, frustration, and passive victimization through mood, character, and sound design.
