Audio-visualization of emotions – short assignment

Prepare a short video (around 30s-1m) audio-visualising two of the basic emotions identified by Dr. Paul Ekman (ideally a transition of one to the other), as presented by Sasa Kerkos.

The video should use as its starting point the previous assignment by Sasa Kerkos (emotion visualisation). Take care in combining audio and image, and aim to create added value as defined by Michel Chion.

The video and its sound can be made with original material or reusing material by others. Link to free media resources on the web: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Free_media_resources
