For our first animation, we had to make a coin 'bounce'. The trick is getting the right timing as well as the right movement. Tonight we had two challenges: With the jointed figures that we constructed we first had to raise the arms into action and in the second film we had to throw something. Here are our first attempts at Stop-Motion Animation:
"Marko Throws A Ball At My Head"
Since starting this course we've been investigating a lot of Stop-Motion Animation online. We've found all kinds of amazing things, which i will eventually share with you, but i'd like to start with...PES! What is particularly genius about PES his use of everyday objects to simulate other objects or creatures that he wishes to portray in his films. Here are two of my favorites, 'The Deep' & another one you may know (been watched 6 million times on YouTube) 'Western Spaghetti'. Please click here to see more of PES's amazing animated world.
