Project Description

6fb6b2bf

Choosing two opposite words, like hot and cold, we will design our own ampersand (&) that narrates both. Then we will bring it into motion, paying attention to conflict (your opposite words), story structure of beginning, middle, and end, as well as pace and sound design to enhance your story.
