*About The Project*
This is short animation featuring artwork from the third chapter of Shaun Tan's graphic novel, The Arrival - shauntan.net
I have created sound and music for the book, hoping to add movement and depth to the images. I aimed to create a soundtrack that is reflective of the book's visual style and shows the world from the character's point of view.
The book tells a story of a man who leaves his wife and child in an impoverished town, seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. He eventually finds himself in a bewildering city of foreign customs, peculiar animals, curious floating objects and indecipherable languages.
Sound used is both my own field recording and foley work as well as sound libraries from freesound.org, stephanschutze.com and hissandaroar.com.
