Graduation Campaign Theme <POLL>

Post by Hikari on Thu Oct 02, 2008 2:40 am

Ladies and Gents, as you may be aware of, every graduation has been tied to a certain theme, and previously our seniors have used themes such as Asylum, Laboratory, and Alchemy. This term, we decided to go for a less scientific and more cheerful colorful theme, and the two candidates are :

Carnival/Festival
This theme is pretty much self-explanatory, it will push our graduation towards a more festival-like direction, and it is expected to be colourful, vivid, bright, cheerful and lively. It doesn’t necessarily have to be related to clowns, ferris-wheels and carousel, as long as it is something festive.

Love Bomb
This theme is the brainchild of Jose and to use his words to describe,
“Imagine a bomb with a love painted on it exploding, and when it does colors and stuff like love and peace comes out, instead of death and destruction”
If chosen, our campaign will use a lot of retro 1960’s art styles (think hippies, flowers, love & peace) and bright colours.

It is important to say that both themes are just guidelines for now, what will happen with your choice here is that we’ll choose to either use a lot of 60’s style retro art or create the mood of a festival.



- - - - -

IMPORTANT !!
Please vote only once, and if you wish to, you are encouraged to post a comment on why you chose it, and what you hope the theme will turn out as (example – if you chose Festival, you can suggest a funfair, a circus or even a Japanese matsuri. Or if you chose the Love Bomb, you can suggest 1960’s anti-war movements, hippies, or even The Beatles).
However, please do NOT use this thread for a discussion; this thread is ONLY for VOTES and SURVEYS.
Please use this link to discuss these themes/concepts.

Hi guys, just thought u guys should have a look at these videos, its something like what I had in mind when I thought of Love Bomb.

here are the download links
http://www.beautifultv.co.uk/acceptandproceed.mov
http://www.shilo.tv/Drupal/files/quicktime_uploads/CN_RAP_Web.mov

The title Love Bomb is actually taken from a song by a band called N.E.R.D the name to me sparked some images of Bombs with hearts or smiley faces dropping from the sky, onto this really boring looking purely white city with black outlines, when the bombs explode, paint splatters and designs come out of them, and the whole city is acts as a gigantic canvas. The black and white people walking on the steet within the bombs range also get affected by the spreading color and designs.

here r images that can act as a guide for this (sry no time at the moment to draw the exact things)




Will post more reference when i have some. I like the Carnival Idea as well, could be very interesting although I don't know how to do it cuz all i'm thinking right now is love bomb. Maybe it sounds cooler if Carnival spelling is changed to Karnivale to make it more personalized.

love bomb + carnival = big event

Well the whole Idea of Love bomb is just a simple metaphor of how we as artists affect society. Without art/design our world would be a dull place, its our job to inspire creativity, to express ideas or emotions that cannot be expressed in any other way other than through design, film, music or other artistic mediums. Just as how bombs have a huge impact on society, so does our art. the word "love" in love bomb is just an expression, so please don't misunderstand. its not the luvy dubby hearts and cupids kinda love. "Spread the love" can also mean, "to share."

I also had another idea of "Silent Poets" because we express things through visual mediums instead of words, although it might be more fit for more Fine arts/illustration galleries, since Multimedia and Animation has sound.

the MM folks seem to like the Guinee Pig idea as well which is also fine by me. Hope most people actually post in the forums cuz we all need more input than what we are getting now.
