Blik ~ Animating Emotion Without Expression or Words
Guess what? I'm guest posting over on Myndi Shafer's blog today! If you aren't familiar with Mydni's hilarious blog posts, you really need to check her out. Today I'm following in her Happy Hausfrau tradition and giving Baking Soda Some Love! Did you know baking soda and vinegar can tackle most of your cleaning needs? Yep. Hop on over there to check it out!
While you're here though, I hope you'll enjoy this charming little film that tells the story of a young boy and his first love ~ without words or facial expression. The filmmakers wanted to capture every emotion through subtle body language. It's long, over eight minutes, but it will capture your heart.
As writers we try to show emotion through facial expression, body language, or the words our characters say. This little film has got me thinking of other ways to convey meaning. The tiniest gesture, the exaggerated shrug, what's your favorite way of showing rather than telling?
