Old newspapers from April 1912iii

 

The pictures I have chosen are necessary for my project because they help me understand  the nature of time from 1880 to 1970. How everything looked in the photos, prints, how people had their hair and the fashions. Also it makes me realise how cold everything appears in black & white and how cool old newspaper font is. I think I can be more believable now.

Elimination project III

IT IS FINALLY READY.

It lost quality after I put it on vimeo?

Okay so the project is ready.

I definitely spent too much time on it and I put too much work in, as it was supposed to be a group project.

I made the puppets, the room, the clay coating of the sofa, plant pots, floor, curtains… it would be easier to say what I didn’t do….

Maria offered to edit it but I thought I should have a go at doing it myself, because practice is always welcome.

So, this is my version, I’m not a hundred percent proud of it, but here it is. Enjoy.

Elimination project II

 

“Individually, we re one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro

Yes but…

GROUP WORK

Due to Maria’s illnes I was left to make the whole project with a person that didn’t really enjoy the work.

But

GROUP W

The film is almost ready. We had troubles with our set. It bent after painting the walls, but we overcame it.

Other than this, we had to reshoot the whole thing because of bad lense focus. Now it is sharp and it looks smoother. I’d bet a third reshoot would make it perfect, but there is no time for that.

I also made a special storyboard for the reshoot

I wish the cats could look like this

Unfortunately with the time we have been given to make the whole thing its impossible. Maybe one day.

Critical Manga project IV

Task:

Create a Manga/comic illustrating the rise and demise of a classic early age animator/cartoonist taking into account visual style and their contribution to the development of animation… 4 sides of A4 800 words

My choice is Władysław Starewicz polish animator born in 1882 in Moscow, the first in history to make a film using puppets.

This one is really awesome
