This is an animated comic I made based on the series Luther. I drew and painted all the assets and backgrounds using Adobe Illustrator CC and did all the animation myself using Adobe After Effects CC. The song is by Muse and I do not own any copyrights to the song neither the series itself. The plot is fan fiction and its based after the end of Series 3.
I did this for a college project and received a distinction grade because of all the unique animations within the video, hence I thought it was worth to share it.
Here is a synopsis of the series written by me..spoilers...
The TV series Luther is surrounded around detective struggling with his moral conscience and how it impacts others. He can appear virtuous and forgiving but occasionally he could slip and express his wrath against those who have committed grievous crimes as seen in the opening scene of the pilot when he takes vengeance upon Henry Madison for having murdered children by letting him fall when he was holding on the edge of a platform.
In the beginning of the series, he meets a woman named Alice Morgan when her parents were murdered in cold blood. It didn’t took long for DCI John Luther to realize that Alice Morgan was behind it but he just could not build a case against her because of the lack of evidence. Alice Morgan started to obsess over John Luther and his life, she learned all his strengths and weaknesses but eventually as Series 1 continued they surprisingly grew closer. Alice was fascinated by John and what he did to Henry Madison and she believed that John shouldn't have felt guilt towards what he had done, but she also pitied him as well.
John on the other hand would seek Alice’s advice just like Detective Starling would to the iniquitous Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Also Luther towards the end of series 1, he asked Alice to help him, and at that moment he realized that Alice could never betray him.
Luther came to meet many criminals in his path while the series progressed, he had to make many hard decisions, one of them was to protect the innocent and risk to lose his job or do what would be considered as legally appropriate and risk the lives of those who he had sworn to protect as a police officer. Many times he came close to death, people died, and others were saved.
He was not just audacious and determined but he was virtuous beyond the point of law. Yet the malevolent monsters he came across compiled feelings of vindictiveness within his soul.
Towards the end of series 3, Alice came back (she went on the run on series 2) to save John again from injustice and help him with being framed for certain crimes he did not commit. At the end of the series, Luther and Alice meet up at one of the bridges over the London river and appear to walk off together as the scene pans out.
It is implied from previous conversations within the series that Alice was going to leave again since she was still a fugitive, but wanted John to come with her because she felt as he had been through hell and back a disproportionate amount of times with his current life, but John wanted to stay.
