Frame by Frame Animations
1st Class: Krystof
Today we will be looking at various stop motion animated shorts using a variety of mediums, and begin storyboarding our projects. Now’s the time to start planning how your frame by frame animation will look and feel, and begin to document how you will be illustrating the emotion which you have been assigned.
If you are drawing, or using real object to make your stop motion you must begin to consider how your subjects will be lit. Prague College has lights available from their media center which can be checked out by students. These lights, and how to properly use them will be introduced.
If you are using a character in your piece then you must also look at different angles, and shots which can evoke certain feelings.
You will be required to bring your media to class you have been assigned. We will then be working with our mediums in class and I will help students individually. This is the production phase of the assignment and it is extremely important to be present during these classes as it is very easy to fall behind.
