Action Analysis

video

The 3rd year Action Analysis animation project criteria allows you to do ANYTHING...as long as it's one of the 9 allowed motions, I chose the "pull". The length is the mandatory 5 seconds.
I suggest playing more than once, as the player is still buffering first time around.

Stop Motion walk

video

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.
