The Crow

 

DIE KRAEHE – THE CROW

Die Kraehe (the crow) was my Bachelor Thesis Project at HAW Hamburg. The animation is based on the eponymous song from German composer Franz Schubert’s song cycle “Winterreise” (Winter Journey). In this work, I combined digital animation with handmade textures. The digital and physical elements blend to conjure up a world located in-between the realms of reality and dream. I created the black-and-white visuals based on the conflicting emotions of desperation, sadness, resignation and hope evoked by the classical music piece and the poem the song is based on.
