  • Brazil's flag is one of my favorites from around the world. So when I got this project, I wanted to use something from the flag as an element throughout the animation. 

    I chose to use equilateral triangles not only to emulate the yellow diamond in the flag but also because it acts as a "location" symbol. The triangles feature prominent figures in history, but also people featured in the reporter's packages.
