Escapism is a visual exploration and manifestation of all what's Vollut is about. Fashion mixed with motion design, surreal environment with folk references, and a personal story with a taste of social commentary. Sounds like a fun cocktail.
It all started with a walk cycle, as it's the most basic yet one of the most challenging tasks in animation. It felt logical to tell a story through the most basic motion everyone can understand - someone goes from point A to point B.
I was going through a big transition in my life at this point and decided to capture that feeling. The number of symbols and clues I wanted to include in this artwork increased with each day. I never have a complete picture in my mind. Only the initial Point A, the spark of the idea. And after that, it's a long iteration and going back-and-forth process.
