Invention of Flight
Hey everyone! I finally have some more stop motion assignments to show. First I have my 2nd 10-Second Club assignment, “Vehicular Play”. This was just an interaction between our molded characters and a wooden vehicle prop. Since my character is a flyer, I chose to have it interact with a plane. I have my guy taunt it, circling around it, and that’s it. It was during this shoot that I came down with a killer fever and couldn’t even stand up any longer. I called it quits and never got back to it, sadly. I wanted to have my character chase the plane back onto stage and then literally expand (since it’s clay), wrap around the plane and completely consume it. Breakfast of champions? Here it is:
My second little film to show is my 3rd assignment. In this we had created “trainer puppets” in order to walk cycles more easily and effectively than using a clay character. I just finished this tonight. In it, we had to include a walk cycle with our new trainer puppet and then have it interact with our molded characters. Again, I chose to incorporate flight. This was better as I had the assistance of my friend, Keff Beasley. He assisted me in making a new fly rig involving a shield of popsicle sticks, two strings instead of one, and puppet grip. It was my own idea, but it would be nearly impossible to assemble it with out a second set of hands. I used fishing line this time and so the rig barely shows up! Nice! So, I hope you enjoy this COMPLETED project:
Time to sleep!
