Through paint motifs, a cat chases a mouse… a clever one at that.
Made in TVPaint during my last year at CalArts!
Also watchable on Vimeo.
This is how I’ve tackled my film this year– completely in TVPaint! First, I’ll animate my roughs, using different colors for general cleanup. Then, I’ll make a silhouette on another layer, and using that as a stencil, create another layer with an overall gradient and a final layer with paint and eyes. Eeeek! Less than one week left! At least these are all done for the most part!
No background yet, just a ducky!
This is a zoetrope I made for the CalArts Re-Envisioning America show 2012. I had the idea of getting more mileage out of zoetrope animation by controlling the images by turning on and off different colored lights. In this one (hopefully the first of several), red, green and blue lights turn on and off to reveal three different images.
It’s a little floppy, it’s not perfect– but it was a pretty successful learning experience!
Powering everything is an Arduino Uno, Ardumoto shield, motor, and a BlinkM MaxM light. Animations were done in TVPaint.
Modeling my 2D film character for kicks! No poncho yet, but eventually he’ll get one.
What’s this? A man flying in a poncho?! He looks just about as confused about the situation as you probably are: “Why on earth is she painting every frame?” Well, because she can. Especially when she refers to herself in third person, hehe.
Don’t be sad, lil flower spirits!
Oh hey, it’s APRIL! That means it’s time foooor some SCREENSHOTS!!! Yay 4th year film!!!
Got the whole thing animated in rough, working in TVPaint. The huge task for the next 22 days is painting all the frames and compositing all the everything together! Good luck to all my animator friends, let’s conquer our films!
