the technique of photographing successive drawings or positions of puppets or models to create an illusion of movement when the movie is shown as a sequence.
I wish doing one caused the second, or the other way around. Seems like every time I attempt to get really hyped up to complete a task, I end up falling short when it comes to the final execution or the quality of the product. Alternately, when I do have a moment of brilliance, it seems as if it was never intended. If the completion of one animation done out of sheer procrastination, imagination, and boredom animated me right into the completion of the next task. One I probably have less motivation to finish. A chain reaction of productivity. I suppose this is why actors make their films in cycles. They tend to make their money film, then do a personal film, then one for the academy etc.
At the end of the day, I guess I’m at least making progress on keeping my website somewhat up to date. Three posts in a a week? I must be losing my mind! Used to go months without updating this thing, but I have been receiving so much love from every corner of the world for my art so I figure I should try my best to give something, anything back. Let’s hear it for animation.
