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.
In the event that I couldn’t complete Who Do Voodoo on time, I wanted to do a little stop-motion backup film. So I ended up with two films in the Open Show this year!
Shot with a Canon Powershot and a limited amount of Play-Doh that wanted to have its own way! (At least the light and Curious Contraption behaved).
This is what a traditional animator does.
Over and over and over and over.
I just wanted give a feel of what it is to see your animated frames come to life when flipping/rolling them manually.
And I would not complain if someone found a way to give me a second left arm, so I could flip more than five pages at a time
That’s all the preview you’re going to get for now on my film!! Hope you enjoy
