Burns Colour/Mood Board

Taking inspiration from the time-honored tradition of preparing mood and colour boards that lay out the feel of the story before the storyboard and assets get rendered, I used Burns’ life, represented through his poems, as a timeline for the overall story. Each poem represented here is indicative of an event in Burns’ life, and the colours have been chosen to reflect not only the mood of the poem, but his own place in his life as well as his writing career.

In this manner, colour can not only tie together the different subjects of the poems and the different styles of the two artists, but also communicate the emotional impact of each story subliminally. I believe colour can be a powerful tool to join styles and communicate information.
