Origami Stop Motion

One of the themes in my proposed narrative is the power of stories and the written word. One way to illustrate this through animation is to show pages of text literally coming to life. I was inspired by the Asics ad posted previously () and my stop motion tests to try some origami-based animation. The animation itself wasn't overly successful (more inbetweens needed as much of the motion is getting lost) but I'm keen to explore this avenue further.

More Animation Tests

I was playing round with some stop-frame animation the other day. Again, I can't yet relate this directly to my program of study - but there is inherent value in testing out a different form of animation.

Animation Test

I'm not sure how this relates specifically to my practice - I just really had the urge to make something that moved so I roto'd a start and end picture and sketched the in betweens.

I still think this is going to be relevant somehow - I'm just not too sure when that will become apparent!

Look Development: Paper World

After lots of experimenting here's my first image of a shape with a paper texture. (Sorry the background image isn't great quality - my camera's broken so I resorted to my iphone.) There's loads of work still to do - but from a starting point of barely knowing how to create a light in Maya I'm pleased with my progress so far.
