For the Visual Thinking and Symbols list of assignments,
I chose One Story/Four Icons.
Thinking of a movie to create out of four symbols was the first step, and ultimately the hardest. I thought of movie after movie, and each one I came up with, I felt as if the symbols I would have chosen would have been way too easy, and the point of this assignment was for it to not be easily figured out.
This movie is by far my FAVORITE movie of all time. Without it being on, anyone who knows me, knows that I could recite it to you. I am a huge fan of the actors/actresses in the movie. The reason I lie the storyline so much, because I myself, am a hopeless romantic, and the way this movie was created seems like some way my life would turn out (putting myself in her shoes). I don’t want to say too much, but after y’all figure what movie it is, I definitely recommend you watch it 🙂
After I chose the movie, I thought of symbols to use. To find the symbols, I started using The Noun Project but then found as if I wanted pictures/symbols with a little more pizazz than just black and white for this project. I ended up using good ole’ Google. After scrambling through each picture on Google, I chose the final four and saved them. I then opened a Paint document and pasted each picture/symbol in the order I felt as they would fall in the movie storyline.
The four pictures/symbols I chose represented the main places of the movie as well as major symbols of what took place at the beginning, middle, and end.
If you haven’t figured the movie out:
