Sophie Williamson - Animation
Here I have some examples of short animations I created for a Visual Studies module. I started experimenting with taking photographs of a drawing aid to judge the range of movement. I created the stickman using butterfly pins and ball joints with rounded limbs to create the biggest range of movement. I made rough story boards of what I wanted to capture, and using a video editor ran my 5 scenes into one 43 second piece. Whilst not perfect it is a good example of what is involved in creating a few seconds of movement. The videos 'shot?' and 'Stick man' were created in the same module to give examples of a different style of animations, and to get an idea of how many stills are required to create the illusion of movement.
