We've begun working on stop-motion animation in Experimental Animation class. So we're designing, building, and animating our own sets and characters...from scratch. It's so much fun, but SOOOO time consuming. I had no idea, and I'm the king of watching behind the scenes extras. Here's some idea of what I was up to on the weekend. My model will be based off of Scar from The Lion King. I want to animate more quadrupeds so I can understand them. Plus I like to challenge myself and then complain about it later. I also wanted a leaner character so I could explore some good ranged in movement, so Scar fit the bill.
Time for Spring Break, I've got a lot of great films to watch.
