Wink Rotoscope

I made a quick animation using the rotoscoping method, it took me two days to produce two seconds of material, so I’ve got a while until I’m on A-ha ‘Take On Me’ level, but I’m pleased with the results!

I later had a sound workshop with Chris Reed from ‘Paper Cinema’ and added some music over the top to make that wink all the more sassy!

The Tell Tale Heart

Here are the finalised images for my modernised version of Edgar Alan Poe’s ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ in the form of a comic strip. The illustrations were first drawn in charcoal and then manipulated on Photoshop. The narrative is not a linear one, in that the story is told through a series of flashbacks. To differentiate this from present time I have kept the flashbacks in black and white, and the present is represented through colour. The second page is a splash-page and hence would take up the space of two pages in a comic book format. Poe pg1 comic colour Poe Splashpage

The Paper Cinema

Had a great 2D animation workshop working with The Paper Cinema, if you haven’t heard of them before, they’re website is definitely worth checking out!

They perform live music and animation by using illustrated 2D ‘puppets’ in front of a camera. My group collaborated to make a humorous animation titled ‘Kentucky Fried People’, of which we really enjoyed creating! Hopefully I’ll be able to put up a link of the animation itself soon, but for now here is a few of our drawn puppets.
