So, imagine a filmfestival of the worst shortfilms around the whole world of Belgium. That's the idea I had for my exam for Major Atelier 3 for Devine - Digital Design & Media. The reason I picked a black rose as icon, is because of the double meaning. The first meaning is an extension of my pseudonym: Blacksnipe. The second reason is because of the misunderstanding a black rose has.
A red rose reminds people of the romantic scenery or ... well I think you'll get the picture of what I mean. A black rose however wears another sense. More like the mafia uses a black rose to give to traitors or other people as a threat. But it's still a rose, spray it red and it's romantic again...
Thus, the black rose is just misunderstood. So are the shorts that will be shown at the festival. From this idea I started to work out the concept for the assignment for my exam: create the Flash website for a filmfestival by choice.
The website wears a grungy theme, fitted to the black rose. The font has the same amount of grungy-ness, with the swirls and curls of a rose or other floral stuff. The menu collapses on a mouse over, with a delay. Other stuff you might find out, too. Life is a quest after all... ;-)
