This is an older project from my last year in the Graphic Design program at AUB. It was part of an animation course entitled If Walls Could Talk, instructed by Lina Ghaibeh. Each student worked on a short segment that was later compiled into a longer film entitled Durrafourd Mon Amour.

The animation process on this involved several stop motion techniques that involved painting on the walls of the abandoned East Durrafourd Building as well as using objects found in the location. The film was screened in the Building upon the completion of the course and was subsequently shown in the first edition of the Beirut Animation Festival.

This was one of the most valuable and enjoyable courses I have ever been able to take but it was disappointing that the Durrafourd building was later demolished to be replaced by a parking lot...
