In this blog, we will explore the uses of shapes in representing various types of characters and their significance in the movie. While the meaning of color can be misinterpreted due to cultural differences, the meaning of shapes remains constant and carry their own attributes and properties that define the character they represent. It is fascinating to observe how each shape portrays its own personality ethics, significance, and stability in the characters it embodies.
The most basic shape used in creating characters is the circle. Circle is the shape that symbolizes unity and harmony. Characters represented by the circles are often associated with positive traits such as balance, wholeness, and perfection.
Triangles are often associated with sharpness and evil. Characters represented by triangles tend to be bold assertive and confident.
Rectangles and other shapes used in creating characters are often associated with support and sturdy, and their ability to organize the strategy makes them essential to the story.
Square is the shape often associated with balance and represents reliability and dependability.
Basically shapes play a crucial role in the character representation in the movie. They offer a simple yet effective way to convey a character’s personality without the need for any explanations.
