As mentioned before, I had to choose and object from the Battle of Trafalgar Exhibit at the Maritime Museum. The next step is to use that object as a focus point of the Motion Graphics Piece.
During the visit to the Museum I came across a very interesting part of one of the most significant moments of Nelsons life.
The description on the left describes the photo above.
More research about this painting describes a very interesting moment in Nelsons life. He was obviously seen as a very strong individual, however Nelson stated the weakest moment in his life was not when he lost his right arm, but when he couldn’t right to his loved ones due to the loss of his am. Something that anyone else might feel is a very simple thing, marked the most significant moment in his life. Writing to his woman was the only way of personally communicating with her.
This is why I have chosen this object and is what I would like to show in my video: The fact that losing his arm isn’t what made him feel weak and in fact it being the loss of communication to his loved ones.
