The final version of my one minuet film. Not as good as I would have liked. I decided to shoot mainly from the same angle, but now after making the film, if I had time, I would love to remake it using a variety of different camera angles. But I’m happy with it as a small experiment with stop frame animation:
I tried all sorts of materials for the leaves and grass and snow etc. Ended up using tissue paper, actual leaves, sugar, candles, barley, coloured paper, foam board etc:
Trying various ways of animating snow, none of which really worked anything like I was hoping!! Using icing sugar, oats, rice, flour and barley:
I started of with the location of just a bench, I originally wanted to create an idea of the space at a different time, for example projecting a film of the bench on a rainy day onto the same bench at night. But this developed into a huge piece (see sketchbook for Ideas) that maybe I could do another time and I progressed to doing one of my favourite things: stop-frame animation! All i really needed was the bench and lamppost, I decided to use foam board as its much more sturdy:
I finally finished the editing in final cut! After I captured the clips I needed somehow they were all out of sync! I have no idea how this happened??! ah well, I managed to get it all synced up nicely, with the amazing andy’s help of corse!!:D
I then edited all the clips separately using the low pass filter in final cut and it worked nicely to make it muffled.
it is not working at all it will not capture any amount of film, it either freezes or pretends that i didn’t capture anything at all!!!! AAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhrg
i really hope Rolf can help me in the morning!! Please God.
Here is the Cath Kidston animation I made collaboratively with Shane Wilson and Jenny Wiscombe for the Eat Big Fish company (a brand consultancy). It is for a section of their website called fishfood, which is an online programme to help instill challenger thinking and behaviour in organisations. We were given a script about Cath Kidston to animate, and had a meeting with a representative of the Eat Big Fish company, liv, and showed her a story board of what we would do. She was happy with it so we went ahead to do a stop motion animation:
