I’ll actually be playing in this one 🙂
Drawn at a CalArts Salsa shindig in the Main Gallery.
This semester I’m working on animating a film to go along with The Wild Wagoner, a fiddle tune by mountain man Jilson Setters. This is a collaboration with the school of music, specifically for the American Anthology Project “Reeinvisioning America”. I decided to do a sort of caricatured biography on Jilson for my story… here are some screencaps of the film so far, which will be playing at CalArts around the 8th of December 🙂
Sometimes animated films can feel a little too “animationey” in their cinematography, with perfectly smooth camera moves and still holds. With the magic of After Effects and a 24fps handheld video cam (if your cell phone can handle it, go for it), you can make still shots feel like they were shot on a handicam.
Here’s my 49 hour film for the 48-hour lockdown in Character @ CalArts, 2010!
Animated in Flash 🙂
We’ve acquired X-ray vision in our anatomy class. Yay for turning the model into a zombie!
