Stop Motion walk


Here is an in-class exercise from our Stop Motion course. I aimed to bring a "Rubber Hose" mentality to it. 5 minutes before the end, the puppet's leg broke. My instructor, Chris, Advised to make a gag out of it. So I did a subtle "Take" using white sticky-tak on the black board behind the puppet for the lines indicating alarm. The puppet's leg is held by a magnet under the stage. Stop motion is fun, it's very tangible and straight forward.

HAHAHA I love it! The leg is a great gag.

I could tell this was your work before even playing the video. You posed it just like how you draw! haha

--Thanks Mitch! I think it's important to have your personality show through and do recognizable work :)

And... you certainly do it as well with your work! It's instantly recognizable.

Hey Amir,

This piece would have been great as a treadmill cycle - that way you could highlight the rubbery action of the arms and the gag at the end would read better.

Hey Bob

I agree it could be improved the way you suggested, I'll take note!

Thanks for stoppping by!
