Can We Be Happy Now is going to screen at the Samuel H. Goldwyn Theatre for the 2012 Producers’ Show! This is all happening at 8 pm on the 9th– just got the sound mixed and tidied up some animation and color… I’m really excited to see it on the big screen! 😀 See you there!!!
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.
Soooo much amazing artwork! Such amazing friends! So many caricatures were drawn! The gallery opening last night was a blast and the art’s been lovely all week. Will definitely need to come next year (and the year after, and the year after that). This year I made 15 ink drawings on scrolls, which will be uploaded within the coming weeks 😀
NBC LA wrote an article on the Dead Man’s Ball film I made! This is really exciting, I’m so glad people are enjoying it– thank you for all your support!
