Hands-on video project!
posted:
Last year I worked with Damn Fine Media, a company that specialises in quirky video projects which incorporate live action and stop motion animation.

This film was for TES, a propular education and teacher resource here in the UK, and it advertises some of the features of their online TES PRO service.

It was a very quick turnaround and I created the artwork ( characters, backgrounds, etc) in just couple of days.  They were then printed and cut out by hand.

If you watch the video you will see there was a lot of different heads and arms involved.  We filmed it pretty swiftly in half a day and those are my (nervous) hands on show!
It was a really interesting project to work on and since finishing it, I have taken a night class in traditional puppet-based stop motion animation.  It's a fascinating activity but am yet to be convinced that I have the meticulous and patient approach required for such work.

...As you can see in my first animation (test)!
