Had to post this melting face animation from @thee_nshet and I’s latest film!!! It’s gonna be some time before we post the full thing publicly because we’re submitting it to film festivals right now, but stay tuned and it will be up eventually!
Also special thanks to everyone who came out to the 50th annual David Weinkauf film festival to see our films!! We had a blast showing them, and it’s only up from here!! #stopmotion#stopmotionanimation#meltyman#studentart#animation#straticut#clay#clayart
#stopframe • @hatsuboku Worked in the stop motion studio this evening to make this little clip. I had already animated a character with its head turning, but when we got the brief I saw I had missed a couple elements, so I went in to reshoot it. This time it's a head and shoulders shot, and I added a bit of "story" as to why he's looking back and forth. He's watching something flying around. #stopmotion#wearestory
Back when I worked on the Beetle puppet for Kubo and the Two Strings for @laikastudios, @stevenwongjr shot some behind the scenes footage of the back plates I created for assembling each puppet. I started a tradition on Paranorman of hiding little drawings in each armature I made, usually scribed into a grip block. For Beetle, each duplicate puppet (there were 15 total. I think) had a different animal drawn onto the fiberglass plate that the back shell attached to. I was also able to label each access point for tensioning the ball and socket joints that allow the armature to move. Video shot by @stevenwongjr, property of Laika Entertainment @laikastudios You can see a longer version of this video and many other behind the scenes pictures and videos on Steve’s account.
#stopframe • @hatsuboku I'm slowly but surely working my way through my final assignments for the study block. Spent most of the day on this one! Our characters are supposed to walk on screen feeling one way, react to something off-screen, and then walk off feeling another way. This guy feels confident he's going the right way and then realizes he's lost. So I guess the emotions I'm conveying are certainty and uncertainty? 😂👍
Stay healthy during winter, people 😏😏😏😏 #animation#project#framebyframe#stopmotion#traditionalanimation#paper#markers#experiment#stopsmoking#bacteria#fight#learning#ib#settinggoals
People say sixteen is the time when we learn about our own way we would need to live in order to preserve in clear mind and health. But... what can I do if people say different things to me?... Should I only focus on what I find necessary, or should I work hard and aim to succeed everywhere?... “Get the grade you deserved... get the grade you REALLY deserved....” Didn’t I deserve sleep?.. Personal life?.. Time for family? For doing sports? Call me a nihilist, or a little child - however you want. But I strongly disagree with the idea that I should write every test from every subject with my blood. Of course, I’m capable of getting all perfect grades, but what for? To see some nice neat numbers on the paper? And please, understand me correctly, right now I’m talking about the numbers that will not even affect my first Baccalaureate year!... I know this may sound pretty “teenish”, but I’m not the one who would spend all the free time on silly stuff (I barely know what Netflix is) - just like many of us, people, who already KNOW who and how they want to be, and yet are made to follow a range of subjects, which have a very little connection with our future. After all, I would gladly hear the lectures from physics or chemistry, as I tend to be interested in many things - you never know where you will find your inspiration. But grades, grades, tests... my god.... And yes I’ve got a fig from chemistry test. It’s an issue already. But what can I do?... Essays, essays, essays.... And I had to stop with writing the forth part of WD - “Blood and Dew” - because of this.... 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
