In this piece, I tried to express a sense of calmness through motion, CMF design, color, and sound. The Inhaler is bathed in a clear and soft key light and is grazed by a combination of orange and pink light to subtly resembling the light at sunrise all while being caressed by a soft dark blue cloth moved by a refreshing breeze.
The CMF is close to the original. I added details to the materials and most notably a scalloped surface structure to the housing. The idea of this was to create a more natural/handcrafted feel to the injection molded (I assume) plastic, and also to give the user a heightened sense of tactility and something to fiddle with to help induce the calmness.
The music is paced at 60bpm, the same as a calm and relaxed heart rate in a normal person and it contains claps with long reverberation hinting at the sound of the CBD Nano Mist being released from the canister through the atomizer.
In the first 4 seconds of the animation, the camera is subtly zooming out and subtly zooming in, in the next 4. With this, I hoped to subconsciously add the effect of a calm rhythm of breathing, but I’m most likely going too far out here.
Anyway, thanks for watching and taking the time to read this. Good luck to all attending.
