Ani Yr 1 2014/15 CS: Industry Roles & Practices

This could be either-­‐ a production (series, game, movie, advert, music video etc.), -­‐ a studio or production house, -­‐ or an area of emerging practice (e.g. web based content production and funding, animation in other contexts etc.). Think about your own goals and interests when selecting your topic, and do not forget to consider the UK industry, which is the most relevant to the start of your career. Every group member should present, and the group should take the time to practice and time the presentation. You should prepare visual material to aid the presentation, carefully considering the ratio of text and images. Individual research: Each team member will then research a job role in the context of that “header” topic. Dr. Grob's Animation Review. Director: Fernando CortizoRelease Date: October 31, 2012Rating: ★★★★½Review: 2012 was a good year for stop motion animation fans: no less than four stop motion features were released that year.

Dr. Grob's Animation Review

In March we had Aardman’s ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!’ , followed by Laika’s ‘ParaNorman’ in August and Disney’s ‘Frankenweenie’ in September. Least known among these was the last release, from October: ‘O Apóstolo’ from Spain. Somehow, stop motion feature film makers seem to favor horror-inspired plots, and ‘O Apóstolo’ is no exception. Trajan's Amazing Column. The story of Emperor Trajan’s victory over a mighty barbarian empire isn’t just one for the books.

Trajan's Amazing Column

It’s also told in 155 scenes carved in a spiral frieze on a monumental column. Trajan’s Column, with a statue of St. Peter installed by a Renaissance pope on top, towers over the ruins of Trajan’s Forum, which once included two libraries and a grand civic space paid for by war spoils from Dacia. The massive modern monu­­ment at right commemorates Victor Emman­uel II, the first king of a united Italy.

The 40 Best Stop-Motion Animated Movies of All Time

Before the days of CGI, it was a primary way to produce special effects, in classics from King Kong, to Jason and the Argonauts, to Star Wars. It’s called stop-motion. It’s rumored that the legendary cinema pioneer Georges Melies accidentally discovered it when his camera jammed once, and upon restarting it he noticed how everything slightly changed. Soon after, stop-motion films began appearing in Europe. What started as a novelty turned into an art form when artists with unique skill and vision began making their films utilizing it. Most commonly, it’s associated with puppet, but over the course of cinema development other mediums were used as well-figures made of clay (claymation), puppetoons (ready-made figurines), silhouettes. To make the character move, the filmmaker has to take a picture, adjust the figure, take another, and so on. Free Student Version for Academics. Closed Mondays.

How the Puppets from Fantastic Mr. Fox Were Made [Slide Show]

Sculptors began by fleshing out the designs into three dimensions using plastiline clay. The main animal puppets—the ones used for close-ups—were approximately 12 inches tall, and the human characters were slightly smaller; since they don’t share much screen time, the difference in scale wasn’t a problem. After the plastiline figure was approved by Wes—who directed this film remotely from his Paris apartment; Haymoz says that when he finally did visit the studio, it was like seeing Santa Claus—the sculptors removed a layer of clay equal to the thickness of the fur that was going to be applied to that particular area.

Says Saunders, “It was kind of half science, half art, how you shrunk the character down so that when you added the hair to it, it would go back to the original volume.” "Will O' The Wisp" Production Bumper + Short Film (2014) - Hello Everyone :) I've been posting some random W.I.P. photos and little test videos over the past year or so, but I recently discovered there's a "your project" section here in the forum.

"Will O' The Wisp" Production Bumper + Short Film (2014) -

So this is a thread for my ongoing project, "Will O' The Wisp". Hope you enjoy. Here's a little background about how the project came to be: Long story short - I was working on an indie film one winter, and I was hanging out in a trailer talking to the makeup Fx people and producer while we were waiting around for the next scene. A couple months after principal photography wrapped, one thing lead to another, and the producer wanted to know if I'd do a stop-motion bumper for the production company.

It was originally only supposed to be a short bumper that played at 6 seconds, 15, and 30. Stop motion model making. Puppets by Robyn Ng at James Carlisle: Armature upgrade. Back to uni and starting third year with a mime/after effects project.

James Carlisle: Armature upgrade

Started by upgrading my summer armature from hard foam to balsa wood. Just to make sure it would survive the animation process. I also made about three pairs of spare hands just incase fingers/wrists broke In the past, there were separate briefs to do a mime, lip sync, and after effects project that don't link to each other at all. But this year they've all been thrown into one. With this in mind, the basic premise for my mime piece is that my character is hit by some sort of meteor, stumbles around and unfortunately, dies.

The Pixar Theory

I explain how, and possibly why. Several months ago, I watched a fun-filled video on that introduced the idea (at least to me) that all of the Pixar movies actually exist within the same universe. Since then, I’ve obsessed over this concept, working to complete what I call “The Pixar Theory,” a working narrative that ties all of the Pixar movies into one cohesive timeline with a main theme. This theory covers every Pixar production since Toy Story. That includes: A Bug’s LifeToy Story 2Monsters Inc.Finding NemoThe IncrediblesCarsRatatouilleWall-EUpToy Story 3Cars 2BraveMonsters University The point of this theory is to have fun and exercise your imagination while simultaneously finding interesting connections between these fantastic movies.
