If you’re interested in seeing the stereo videos, you need to get a stereo viewer. They’re pretty great.
Summer 2011 I drove from Hollywood, FL to Los Angeles, CA with my girlfriend Katie. A few months before my mom had helped me rig a stereogram system with using 2 flip cameras, here are some of the video experiments in chronological order along with some gifs for everyone else who doesn’t have a stereogram viewer. If you’re going to watch the videos, make sure they’re running at 720p, full screen, and with the audio turned down. (some times I scream in them to help me sync the image):
Wednesday I pulled my first all-nighter. I’m still reeling from it. Staying up all night wasn’t even necessary. I was just starting to feel like I was falling behind, and decided to nip it in the bud. I still feel like I’m falling behind now. But less so.
Anyway, our assignment last week was to perform a cut out animation under the oxberry in 1 hour. I got excited and way too ambitious, stayed up all night. But an hour is still an hour, so here is what I ended up with:
Not so great, but hopefully I’ll upload a modified version. Here are some pictures of the cutouts and the background:
We had an hour under the Oxberry to imbue an inanimate object with emotion. Weirdly enough there were two other projects that had a similar dynamic, little thing irritating a big thing.
Then for a different class we had to take our 1 hour animation and modify it with the computer:
I kind of broke my cardinal rule here. I tossed this project aside like homework because we only had 1 hour to work on it, but Katie liked it and told me to post it. She was the voice actor too.
I’m in the process of turning my old website into this new site with the blog upfront. I’ve got all the video pages transferred over, and some time this week hopefully I’ll move over all of my 2D work. There has been a great culling of portfolio images during the move, most of the drawings on this site are almost 2 years old and gotta come down. But, since I have a blog now, just because something isn’t going in the online portfolio doesn’t mean it can’t go online! So here are all sketches and video that aren’t making it to the new portfolio:
An audio/visual collage using found and recorded footage.
I worked backwards for this one, creating the sound first
and setting the video to its cues.
The first animation using the rotograph to simulate
This was my first attempt with the rotograph. It’s pretty crude, but it got me excited enough to make a more elaborate version.
My first try at simulating parallax, based on a series of
drawings I was doing at the time.
Color drawing assignment where we were had to respond
to music. I made this box that rotated three rolls of acetate
in alternating directions in response to Queequeg’s playhouse
by Man Man.
This the updated final landscape:
I don’t know if we’re actually going to be animating these panoramas after all- but I did it as an experiment today anyway. Before- I’ve animated parallax manually, but here I’ve put 9 different photoshop layers in 3D space, then just animated a virtual camera. I plan to add some moving lizards and an airplane soon:
