This time I set out to create a jumping sack. I think it went quite well, though I destroyed the puppet sack a bit on landing and had to fudge it a bit.
Always wanting to wring what I can out of every frame, I created a loop out of it. Unfortunately I couldn't get the light & dark side of the table to get along with each other, so I stumbled on these scanning crop marks. I think it's a nice effect.
This was also the first of these videos I added sound to. Also a success, I think, for an exercise anyway.
In preparation for our BIG PROJECT using stop motion, I've been doing some silly little exercises loosely based on those in Ken Priebe's book, the Art of Stop Motion Animation.
They aren't much to look at, but I'm hoping the series of them will show dramatic improvement and a nice build up to our actual project.
I promise better things are about to come- these initial ones are meant only to show where we started.
