Thanks to Mattias Löw and Peter Lundholm from Umeå Institute of Design, so I made my first story!

Dancer was the result for the 60 seconds short story project, a story about a ballerina who lost her soul. I chose to tell the story with sketches, for I believed the simple style would make the flow.
The story happened when the dancer was practicing in front of the mirror. Her reflection in the mirror become alive and pushed her to an unexpected end.

The inspiration of this story come from the classic philosophical questions, ” who am I?”,” where do I come from? The story tries to address the issue that people who live with chasing a dream got lost by temptation from the complex world. The concept and the storyboard of this story was made before the movie “Black Swan” released. It was very exciting to find similar idea from that movie.
