Shifting perspectives from external to internal. We look out of the gnashing mouth from the blistery inside. Stop motion animation puppet test for the upcoming “Tongue” project.No Comments on Gnashing Internal Teeth
Working with the Maker Bot to 3D print an articulated stop-motion puppet. The printer isn’t as precise as I had hoped. Lots of sanding is required to fit the pieces together smoothly. Once this puppet is finished I hope to manipulate the figure with some fracturing and/or repetition. Most likely it will become a glitchy, broken thing.No Comments on Machine Made Object

I’ve been thinking about recombining some of my imagery in different ways. Here’s one combination I think works incredibly well. The foreground is bubbles, water and light, while the background is an animated chalk drawing on blue paper.
A drop expanded to a dribble. The craft was leaking. Having just shorted out, the telephone line was dead. There’s no communication with the surface. The silent line should be signal enough for the crew to respond to the emergency at hand. A sinking feeling in my stomach told me the sphere was rising … So was the water. At this depth it is 20 minutes to the surface. Looking at my watch, then at the rising water, I quickly answered my most pressing question. Will I drown before I reach the surface? The mathematics suggest a negative outcome.No Comments on The Pressure
I’ve created a group on fbook called the Animation Frame Report. It’s purpose is to act as a platform for posting the incremental steps animators slave over to create animation. Hopefully animators will find it useful for feedback and inspiration to keep animating. Who else but a fellow animator understands that creating a compelling 24 frames of a movie in a day is quite an accomplishment.
