To get into practice for completing my Anthropomorphism brief i wanted to try and get to grips with stop motion, seeing as i had created live action and a basic animation i felt that i wanted to teach myself a different aspect of video and motion graphics.

I started off with a cardboard box, thinking what type of scene could i create?

I also found some old pipe cleaners, coloured paper and 3D letters and shapes, thinking hmm what Anthropomorphic characters and scene could i create with these accessories that i found?

I thought of all sorts of scenes that i could create, from aliens in space, under water, jungle, desert etc.

First i wanted to go down the simple route just to get to grasps with creating stop motion animation. I decided to created an under water scene with some coloured paper and 3D shapes.

Below is an image of a scene that i took:

Here is the final video:

 

Coud i have made this better? Yes 100% it was too fast and the lighting wasn’t very good.

 

Then I decided to see what i could make with the pipe cleaners and cardboard box. I got the paint out and started to paint a jungle theme as i thought this was the best option to take. So i thought what animals live in the jungle where i could create them into characters from the pipe cleaners…..

Here is me creating my characters and the characters that i created:

I then started to create the background on the cardboard, drawing an online of a jungle then painting it on. I also gathered some leaves and bushes from my back garden to make it look as realistic as possible. Here is me creating my background.

Here is my final outcome:

Was i happy with the final outcome? Oh yes i had so ch fun creating this, i really enjoyed creating stop motion but oh my its hard and time consuming. But so much fun.

What could i have done to make this better? i could have made sure the lighting was processed a bit better, lighting goes on and off bit off track. But so happy with the final outcome. Also for my final project i may consider stop motion.
