»The God of Small Things« Teaser

The God of Small Things Teaser

I totally forgot that I put this teaser online for the portfolio I handed in for the Sokrates/Erasmus exchange-program.

This was one of the tasks in a »Macromedia Director« class from the basic studies. We were asked to do a short teaser for an imaginary movie only with typography and graphic symbols. I know that it is not very good (it’s much too long) but I still like the atmosphere.

Because of Director‘s unability to export the teaser properly, I‘ve done the clip for a second time with »After Effects« in far less than a quarter of the time it took me in Director. What do we learn from that? Director really sucks. It does.

Please note that this is not a real trailer.

I don’t think that Mrs. Roy will ever give permission for an adaption of her book and I am quite happy about this because »The God of Small Things« is one of the best books I’ve ever read and a movie would only destroy my very own images I have while reading it.

In addition Arundhati Roy is one of the very few people I consider to be a role model. Her political writings and engagement is very encouraging. I adore her.
