Title: What is Wellness to you?
Stop Motion and Motion Graphics
The state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal. What is wellness to you is a video that gives different points of view about the meaning of this word. Some think that wellness is a state of mind. We decide to use different words and different representations because this word can represent so many things. We start with the concept that wellness means nature and peace. Then we move the focus onto something different: wellness can also means happiness and a healthy mind. For some people, this concept is similar to the idea of recycling and for other people, it can represent the wellness that gives us food or exercise. At the end of the video, we decided to write spirit, because we think that is the word closest to our concept. The morphing technique was our way to represent the varieties of the answer to the question.
